Criminal Procedure: Cases, Problems & Exercises
Russell L. Weaver
Thomson/West, 2004 - Law - 1294 pages
Law school casebook that facilitates the development of advocacy skills. The problems and exercises were designed to place students in real-life situations and encourage students to think about how to handle such situations. At the same time, the book emphasizes intellectual content. Students are encouraged to evaluate policy considerations that underlie the law, and to consider the efficacy and wisdom of the United States Supreme Court's policy choices. Includes not only modern cases that reflect the current state of the law, but some older cases that help students understand and evaluate the modern approach.
