“This book provides a clear analysis of those possibilities [created by the myriad of ancillary orders] and is to be welcomed: it will help judges and practitioners navigate the complex landscape that the law has created. [It] sets out the criteria and law surrounding orders and explains them clearly and in detail: it addresses an often overlooked area of the law but one that it is essential we understand and apply correctly.”
Sir Brian Leveson, President of the Queen’s Bench Division, Head of Criminal Justice – in his Foreword to the book
Ancillary orders often involve nuanced application of detailed law. Combined with the huge variety of situations to which they apply and ways in which they operate, the scope for error when working with them is high.
This is the only guide to the law, application and analysis relating to Ancillary Orders, available to criminal courts, helping you to mitigate risk for your clients.
A Practitioner’s Guide to Ancillary Orders in Criminal Courts covers orders available on acquittal, such as Restraining Orders and Defence Costs Orders, as well as those only available on conviction, such as Compensation Orders and Directors’ Disqualification Orders, with each Order set out in a self-contained chapter. As such, the law and precedent applying to that particular type of Order is simple to access.

Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000
Prosecution of Offences Act 1985
Protection from Harassment Act 1997
