Making Sense of Search and Seizure Law: A Fourth Amendment Handbook
Fourth Amemdment law is both fascinating and inspiring — as it deals with a fundamental human right, the denial of which was one of the leading causes of the American Revolution. But this law can also be extremely confusing. Thus the reason for this book: to make sense of this subject.In a single volume, Hubbart restates the content, organizational structure and principled basis of Fourth Amendment law — as announced by countless U.S. Supreme Court decisions on the subject — so that it is understanble and coherent.The work concentrates on U.S. Supreme Court caselaw, relies heavily on the historical background of the Fourth Amendment upon which much of this law is based, and cites to relevant treatises and leading federal and state court decisions. It also briefly discusses the theories of constitutional construction that the Court has used in reaching its decisions.A wide variety of professionals will find this book extremely useful: judges, prosecutors, defense lawyers, police legal advisors, and teachers and students at the law school, undergraduate and law enforcement levels.
