Teaching Materials
This refreshing new alternative for the first-year Criminal Law course is a lively coursebook that blends text, statutes, cases, and problems in a presentation that is user-friendly for both students and instructors.

These distinctive characteristics make Criminal Law: A Contemporary Approach both effective and engaging:

  • shorter length and with a rich and diverse mix of materials that promotes intellectual challenge without sacrificing accessibility
  • the authors treat criminal law as an introduction to both statutes and cases and emphasize statutes as a primary source, with explicit treatment of statutory drafting and interpretation issues
  • goes beyond the traditional focus on the judiciary to also examine the role of the legislature and the executive in defining offenses
  • clear, direct text introduces statutes, cases, and problems
  • the materials support a wide array of teaching techniques to address varied student learning styles
  • within each section, the authors introduce the basics and then the materials grow progressively more challenging
  • includes both modern and classic criminal cases
  • includes material on ethics and highlights criminal law perspectives
