About Criminal Records, Privacy and the Criminal Justice System: A Handbook

The effect of a criminal record or arrest can be long-lasting and damaging.

Setting out the steps that can help clients to navigate the effect of their criminal record, improve their job prospects, and protect against harmful disclosure of their private life.

Criminal Records, Privacy and the Criminal Justice System: A Handbook is a primer on the law and available applications to be taken for clients relating to privacy, criminal records, historic convictions, and reputation management in the criminal justice sector.

The authors guide you through the steps that can be taken to delete police records, challenge the content of criminal record certificates, expunge criminal cautions, and bring claims protecting the privacy and data protection rights of clients.

As the only handbook of its kind, addressing public and private law claims under one title, this brand new book gives an holistic overview of the ways in which lawyers can help clients cope with the impact of the criminal justice system on their lives and reputations. As such, it is an essential guide for criminal and public law solicitors and barristers, law centres, CABs and PR firms.
