Written in the student-friendly style that characterizes Chemerinsky's Constitutional Law casebook, Criminal Procedure features cases, minor cases, and author-written essays while omitting both notes in the form of rhetorical questions and excerpts from law review articles. The chronological organization moves through the criminal justice process, from investigation to habeas corpus. Dynamic text guides students through understanding the law with tightly-edited cases, samples of legal pleadings arguing the issues, and perspectives from prosecutors, defense, counsel, judges, police, and victims alike. Each chapter has a consistent, systematic approach, beginning with an introduction laying out the nature of the issue, followed by a discussion on the history and development of the law. Then, examples of recent and seminal cases reveal how key criminal procedure issues have been raised, and an analytic approach toward resolving each issue shows what worked and why. The Second Edition has been thoroughly updated and provides analysis of the impact of important recent decisions, such as Arizona v. Gant, Herring v. U.S., Berghuis v. Thompkins, Maryland v. Shatzer, Montejo v. Louisiana, Perry v. New Hampshire, Frye v. Missouri, Lafler v. Cooper, and Williams v. Illinois. In addition, the Second Edition examines new decisions affecting right to counsel, right to fair trial, and habeas corpus law. New supplemental handouts and practice materials are available on the companion website.

Levenson’s first-hand experience in the criminal justice system with Erwin Chemerinsky’s student-friendly writing style. This volume examines the impact of a host of recent developments in the courts and legislature on the trial process.

In addition to presenting the perspectives from various stakeholders (i.e., 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: Adjudication not only employs a systemic approach that takes students through issues from policy to application of legal doctrine but also introduces issues at the forefront of modern criminal procedure debates. Key Features: Straightforward writing style and clear, dynamic text that is uncluttered with law review excerpts and features thoughtfully edited principal and minor cases. Intuitive chronological presentation of topics. Systematic and cohesive exploration of policy on every issue, before moving on to the specifics of doctrine. Practice-oriented features and discussion of important, modern criminal procedure issues. Approachable organization based on common progression through criminal justice system.

Criminal Procedure: Adjudication and Right to Counsel is for courses on criminal procedure law that focus on the issues pertaining to the adjudication of criminal cases.

The Jury and the Criminal Trial chapter has been revised to include the latest developments concerning the Confrontation Clause and the continuing evolution of the Crawford doctrine.

Well-edited cases, interesting materials, and clear explanations and exercises to capture and hold student attention. Logical organizations into categories dealing with the purposes and limits of punishment, offense elements, specific offenses, defenses, and rules of attribution. Cutting-edge coverage of important legal and social questions, such as, who we punish and why. Especially strong treatment of the controversial topics of death penalty and rape. This extremely thorough revision presents: New Material on state sentencing guidelines to supplement coverage of federal guidelines and provide an analytic framework for true understanding of guideline sentencing, rather than just conveying information. A new section on possession offenses, with cases on the elements of possession and new scholarly criticisms of the increasing reliance on possession laws as substitutes for unconstitutional vagrancy and status offenses. Expanded treatment of robbery and burglary. New case law, including Apprendi v. New Jersey (sentencing guidelines), Atkins v. Virginia (the definition of cruel and unusual punishment), Ewing v. California (proportionality), Ring v. Arizona (jury sentencing in the death penalty phase), United States v. Zavala (constructive possession), Rogers v. Tennessee (retroactivity), Recio v. United States (conspiracy), and recent cases on impossible attempt and internet child pornography stings. Streamlined explanation of mistakes of law and the mental element of accomplice liability. A subject as important as criminal law deserves a casebook as good as John Kaplan, Robert Weisberg, and Guyora Binder's Fifth Edition.

Defining Crimes, by the distinguished author team of William J. Stuntz (late of Harvard) and Joseph L. Hoffmann (Indiana), breaks from the tradition of Model Penal Code-centric casebooks and focuses instead on the rich intellectual and theoretical issues that arise from how crimes actually get defined and applied today by state and federal legislatures, trial and appellate courts, police, prosecutors, defense lawyers, and juries. The innovative approach of Defining Crimes enables the in-depth study of the problems and issues that affect the day-to-day contemporary practice of criminal law.
