The law of bail plays a very important role in the administration of criminal justice. It secures the liberty of a person and enforces the presumption of innocence which is fundamental in the administration of justice. Law of Bail: Practice and Procedure has been conceptualized as a handy reference work to cater to the needs of lawyers and judges in day-to-day court practice. The book is divided into three parts. Part I of the book, thematically divided into nine chapters, explains the fundamental concepts pertaining to bail as well as the intricate issues connected with the administration of bail jurisdiction. All issues relating to bail that frequently arise in courts are discussed in detail. Part II provides the full text of twenty frequently cited Supreme Court decisions relating to the law of bail along with headnotes. Part III of the book carries the bare text of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 for ready reference.
