Teaching Materials

Whether you are a prosecutor or a defense attorney, a thorough understanding of the many procedural issues in a case can mean the difference between a conviction and an acquittal or an affirmance or reversal on appeal. This guide by Brent Newton comprehensively examines the major topics in constitutional criminal procedure with a pragmatic view that gets to the heart of each matter quickly and cogently. It includes a summary to every significant decision of the United States Supreme Court that impacts constitutional criminal procedure. This text also highlights many of constitutional procedural issues that the United States Supreme Court has not yet addressed and reviews the extensive treatment these issues have received in the lower federal and state courts.

Written for law students, criminal defense attorneys, and prosecuting attorneys, the Fourth Edition of Practical Criminal Procedure helps legal professionals understand complex criminal legal issues in context and how legal issues commonly arise in real-world litigation.
