Overview

Criminal Procedure is an authentic study of criminal procedure, for both the novice reader and the aspiring law student. It provides a comprehensive introduction to criminal procedure, from a first encounter with the police, all the way through to appeal.

Assuming no legal expertise, the text connects criminal procedure cases to real-life implications through innovative pedagogy. For example, decision-making exercises position you as judge and challenge you to decide cases based on the facts presented.

Conversational and easy to read, the 7th Edition adds Supreme Court decisions through the 2021-22 term and analyzes their impact on criminal and legal processes. Topics covered include qualified immunity, pretrial detentions, victim impact statements and warning shots, among many others.
