(ISBN-10: 1337413992 | ISBN-13: 9781337413992)
Introduce students to the essentials of substantive criminal law and criminal procedure in a single book. Bacigal/Tate's CRIMINAL LAW AND PROCEDURE: AN OVERVIEW, 4TH EDITION will challenge students with a clear and concise presentation of legal concepts while equipping them with the procedural knowledge to succeed in a variety of career settings. The streamlined organization is suitable for a single-course overview of the criminal justice system, while the topic coverage is thorough enough to support two separate courses covering substantive and procedural law.
This book first defines criminal responsibility and addresses major felonies recognized in most, if not all, jurisdictions. The second half details procedural aspects of the entire criminal justice system, from arrest to appeal and habeas corpus, with special emphasis on the U.S. Constitution's fourth, fifth, and sixth amendments. A wealth of summaries and excerpts from court cases emphasize the practical application of this book's narrative account.
This edition introduces some emerging topics and increases coverage of ethical issues, such as the impact of electronic communications on the discovery process. New Learning Objectives and new Sidebar features draw attention to key concepts, while concept summary charts, new practice exercises, essays and integrated discussion questions help students apply what they've learned. A Companion Website provides complete online instructional resources, including updates on rulings, to help you introduce criminal law and procedure with the detail students need for success.
