August 22, 2023

Blackstone’s Guide to the Domestic Abuse Act 2021 has been reviewed by Cris McCurley (Partner at Ben Hoare Bell) for New Law Journal who writes:

“This is an extremely readable and comprehensive guide for the specialist practitioner and the less experienced practitioner alike.”

For the last decade violence against women and girls has been the focus for front line professionals in the statutory and voluntary sector and for those campaigning for law reform, culminating in the enactment of the Domestic Abuse Act 2021.The book provides readers with the latest legislative changes and amendments with expert commentary from across the criminal justice system as to the scope, extent, and effects of the legislation.

Joint Head of RLC Chambers Gillian Jones KC with Professor Susan Edwards (Professor Emerita of Law at the University of Buckingham and RLC Door Tenant) and David Malone (Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor for CPS London South and former member of RLC) contributed to and edited “Blackstone’s Guide to the Domestic Abuse Act 2021″ with detailed and expert coverage of the Domestic Abuse Act 2021.

Cris concludes: “The book includes a well-written clarion call for better professional practice. Those specialising in this area will cheer at this.
Finally, the book contains an annex of the full text of DAA 2021 for reference. This is an excellent handbook for any lawyer embarking on this area of law.”

The book is available to buy now and is published by Oxford University Press. For more information please see: [Oxford University Press]
