For courses in criminal law, criminal procedure, and law and the criminal justice system.

This text bridges the gap between theoretical presentations of criminal law and procedure and the practical realities of working in the criminal justice field. It covers the essential principles, doctrines, and rules of criminal law and procedure, carefully balancing them with numerous “In the Field” special features offering insights drawn from real-world experiences. Students will find many examples and assignments drawn from both federal and state criminal cases, as well as many features and scenarios illuminating ethical standards for criminal justice professionals. Throughout, the text provides maximum flexibility to instructors teaching a wide range of pre-law, paralegal, and criminal justice students.
