Cases and Materials on Criminal Procedure

Front Cover
West Group, 2000 - Law - 977 pages
0 Reviews
The new edition is carefully edited to provide broad coverage of the issues in a manageably sized (900-page) casebook. The author's commentaries provide students with background material and analysis to supplement the cases and statutory materials. Criminal Procedure is such a detailed subject, with such an enormous amount of case law, that it is very easy to become lost in the minutiae. The Third Edition keeps the students' attention focused on the forest rather than the trees by introducing them to the "big picture" at the beginning, and then showing them how each detailed issue relates to the major themes.
