E73 – How do the courts decide whether or not to grant bail? (Article)

This episode is part of the English Legal System (Module 5): An Introduction to Criminal Procedure.


This episode is all about bail. I read an extract from an article ‘How do the courts decide whether or not to grant bail?‘ written by Lucy Trevelyan and published on the In Brief website. In Brief is a great website to access free articles about the laws of England and Wales.  The episode includes information about:

  • What bail is
  • Police powers to grant bail
  • When bail is refused
  • Key Legal English vocabulary about bail
