Constitutional criminal procedure

Front Cover
Foundation Press, Jun 6, 2007 - Law - 942 pages
The Third Edition contains substantial explanatory text, careful use of case excerpts, selected reprinting of more substantial portions of the most teachable seminal cases, and availability of supplementary materials conducive to a wide range of teaching methods and styles that characterized the earlier editions. One particular highlight is the reorganization of chapters and intra-chapter material that should add flexibility to instructors in selecting which topics they wish to cover in depth. Building on the strengths of the earlier edition, the Third Edition features articles, cases, and problems sprinkled throughout the text on the implications of the War on Terrorism for constitutional doctrine. It gives frequent attention to new insights on how the constitutional law of search and seizure, confessions, lineups, and the effective assistance of counsel can alter the risk of wrongful convictions. The Third Edition gives attention to alternatives to the courts as institutions for regulating police behavior and to the role of changing technologies in the evolution of constitutional criminal procedure.
