Anatomy of a French Murder Case

Anatomy of a French Murder Case

By Bron McKillop

The book provides a first hand account of the processing of a murder case through the French criminal justice system from the initial police investigation through to the compilation of the dossier, the hearing and the appeal, and the press coverage of the case. The study provides an effective comparison between ‘adversarial’ and ‘inquisitorial’ processes and will be valuable for anyone with an interest in comparative law, criminal process and legal systems.
