The criminal law is one of the cornerstones of legal and social organization in Canada. As such, its impact is often felt in some manner, either directly or indirectly, by a wide range of Canadians, and, inevitably, a wide range of legal clients. This reality requires even non-specialists in criminal law to have a clear understanding of both the substantive and procedural framework that defines the criminal justice system.

Newly revised and thoroughly updated, Halsbury's Laws of Canada – Criminal Procedure (2012 Reissue) delivers that understanding in an authoritative and comprehensive manner. It sets out the law governing criminal procedure in Canada, as codified by the Criminal Code of Canada, and complements the discussion of the substantive law set out in Halsbury's Laws of Canada – Criminal Offences and Defences. Clearly written and logically organized, this title explains the framework for administering the substantive law, and as its name implies, discusses the procedural rules that support the implementation and enforcement of that law. It encompasses such things as the rules by which, according to the Criminal Code, police powers are exercised, the right to counsel, search warrants, interim release, and procuring attendance of witnesses.

Specific topics covered include:
