Brookers Criminal Precedents is designed to guide legal practitioners through all aspects of criminal law procedures in New Zealand.

From first attendance at the police station, through the legal aid process, sentencing and appeals, the service is a self-contained resource which provides a structured approach to the work of criminal law practitioners.

Each of the topics in Brookers Criminal Precedents contains a narrative summary of required and possible actions. Links in each summary connect to resources such as legislation, cases, forms and precedents and interview sheets.

In addition to the comprehensive Criminal Procedure section, Brookers Criminal Precedents contains sections on Legal Aid (including Legal Services Agency policies and forms), Mental Health (with guidance on matters such as assessment of fitness to stand trial), a full set of Prescribed Forms for matters under New Zealand criminal legislation, Transport (all matters, ranging from infringement notices to serious charges) and Youth Justice (a logical guide to all the processes and procedures relating to this important area of law).
