Bail and the Human Rights Act

Status: This project is complete. Our recommendations were implemented by the Criminal Justice Act 2003 (c44)

This project examines the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 (HRA) on the law governing decisions taken by the police and the courts to grant or refuse bail
in criminal proceedings, between the time when a person is charged or appears in court, and the time of the verdict or other termination of the case in criminal
proceedings.
