Written in a student-friendly manner, the fourth edition of Criminal Procedure eschews excessive reliance on rhetorical questions and law review excerpts in favor of comprehensive exploration of black letter law and current policy issues. Authored by a pair of well-respected criminal and constitutional law scholars, Criminal Procedure utilizes a chronological approach that guides students through criminal procedure doctrine from rules governing law enforcement investigation to doctrine concerning habeas corpus relief. In addition to presenting the perspectives from various stakeholders (e.g. defense attorneys, judges, prosecutors, and victims), the authors take care to provide students with useful, practice-oriented materials, including pleadings and motions papers. Criminal Procedure not only employs a systemic approach that takes students through each step of criminal adjudication, but also introduces issues at the forefront of modern criminal procedure debates.
