Guide On Reporting Restrictions In The Criminal Courts

Updated Publication: Judicial Studies Board (JSB)


Please note that the recently updated version of the JSB Guide on Reporting Restrictions in the Criminal Courts is now available to view on the Judiciary NI website at the below link:

JSB Guide on Reporting Restrictions in the Criminal Courts - Nov 2019

The Guide is an electronic document allowing it to be readily amended to take account of developments and almost all the statutory provisions and decided cases referred to are hyperlinked within the document for ease of access.

Each section of the Guide is also hyperlinked within the index to facilitate navigation. A new feature of the guide is that some useful ‘ready reference guides’ are appended to it which seek to distil some of the substance of the guidance in the main body of the text on particular questions.

This guide will be of assistance to the judiciary, media, legal profession and general public.
