About

Overview

Building on the strengths of prior editions, CRIMINAL PROCEDURE, Seventh Edition, includes updated cases and added real-world examples. This successful and time-tested text couples a classic organization and traditional presentation of case law with cutting-edge coverage of recent trends in law and procedure. The authors' combined academic and practical legal experience provides students with firsthand insights into the American legal system, while ample pedagogy and uniquely accessible writing make the text very student friendly. Utilizing extensive case material, this book covers the historical background of criminal procedure and includes the latest Supreme Court decisions and other developments in criminal justice today. This is one of two updated "splits" of the combined CRIMINAL LAW AND PROCEDURE, Eighth Edition (c. 2014), by the same authors.

Features and Benefits

  • Each chapter opens with a vignette featuring a high profile or controversial case to capture students' interest and help them see the relevance and real-world application of the material.
  • High profile topics covered include the use of TASERs by police, liability of police officers, changes to the Miranda warning, the death penalty, standards of appellate review, motions practice, rules of evidence, and DNA evidence as a basis for post-conviction relief.
  • A "Hypothetical Problems" section at the end of each chapter presents scenarios that challenge students to apply what they have learned to real-life situations. The topics are also ideal for prompting classroom discussion or for writing assignments.
  • Each chapter begins with bulleted learning objectives, which are matched to end-of-chapter summary sections and linked to corresponding quiz or test items in the accompanying Test Bank to provide maximum learning reinforcement.
  • Beginning with Chapter 3, "Case in Point" boxes provide concise summaries of cases that illustrate key concepts.
  • Sidebar discussions furnish relevant information without disrupting the flow of the text, while a set of "Questions for Thought and Discussion" enable students to test their understanding.
