The role of EU law and policy has become a subject of significant interest for those working or studying in criminal law and justice. The pace of European developments and their impact within the Irish legal system has increased demand for research and analysis on a wide range of topics including the European Arrest Warrant, mutual legal assistance, police access to mobile phone data, suspects’ rights, pre-trial supervision and the confiscation of assets.


Criminal Law and Justice in the European Union brings together a group of academics and practitioners based in Ireland, the UK and the Netherlands to explore current issues and emerging trends in this broad but specialised field. This book is designed to introduce readers to law and policy in EU criminal law and to provide detailed analysis of key areas that are pertinent to legal practice. The implications of Brexit on police and criminal justice cooperation forms a particular focus.
