Criminal justice

Updated guide on commencing proceedings from Court of Appeal Criminal Division

In July 2021, the Criminal Division of the Court of Appeal revised its ‘blue guide’ to commencing proceedings.

The new edition is fully digital, reflecting the criminal justice system’s move from paper to digital case files.

The guide brings together:

  • an anticipated update to the Criminal Practice Directions on compliance duties for fresh legal representatives to carry out when taking on an appeal case
  • amendments to the Criminal Procedure Rules (April 2021)
  • relevant legislation
  • useful contact details for the Criminal Appeal Office
