Overview

MindTap™ Criminal Law and Procedure for the Paralegal is a personalized, fully online digital learning platform of authoritative content, assignments, and services that engages your students with interactivity while also offering you choice in the configuration of coursework and enhancement of the curriculum via web-apps known as MindApps.

Analyze and examine crimes by their elements and defenses. Practice legal writing skills by drafting documents commonly used throughout the criminal prosecution process.
