It is over 10 years since Professor George Hampel, former Supreme Court Judge, and Daniel Gurvich, criminal law barrister, published the first edition of Bail Law in Victoria. Since that time the Bail Act 1977 has been amended numerous times, it has been reviewed by the Victorian Law Reform Commission and has been interpreted in light of the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006.

In this 2nd edition of the book Professor George Hampel, Daniel Gurvich and Sarah Bruhn, who prior to becoming a barrister at the Victorian Bar worked at the Supreme Court of Victoria assisting with management of bail applications, provide a timely update of the law on bail in Victoria. A comprehensive review of the case law is provided. The authors identify the potential issues that lawyers need to be aware of when applying for (or opposing) bail.

The original format of the book has been maintained where possible and additional chapters on the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006 and the history of bail in Victoria are included.

As with the original edition of Bail Law in Victoria the authors seek to provide a comprehensive yet easy to read text to assist lawyers in providing the best advice and advocacy.

Industry Reviews

It has been a long time between editions of this book, the first having been published in 2003. In the wake of recent amendments to the Bail Act 1977 (Vic), and with further change potentially on the horizon, the release of Bail Law in Victoria comes at an opportune moment. … [It] is a useful reference guide for practitioners conducting applications for bail.
