Formerly known as "Kirk & Woodcock: Serious Fraud, Investigation & Trial", this well respected working manual is essential reading for all those involved in prosecuting and defending cases of serious fraud. It draws together the strands of what has effectively become a new and distinct area of criminal practice. Containing comprehensive coverage of recent changes and new legislation such as the Fraud Act 2006, the book also covers prosecution and defence duties of disclosure; restructured statutory materials; updated commentary and material on the law relating to serious fraud cases; details of offences, including conspiracy to defraud; cross-border procedures; and coverage of the increasingly important international dimension to fraud investigations. It also explains clearly and succinctly the rules applicable to fraud cases, examining the means open to the prosecutor, defendant and judge in preparatory hearings to ensure a fraud trial is more manageable. The title covers the sentencing options open to the court, providing a comprehensive selection of important statutes, statutory instruments and practice directions.
