Overview

Current, engaging, and succinct, CRIMINAL LAW, Fifth Edition, describes both the reasoning behind criminal law and the practical applications of that law. It couples a traditional presentation of case law with cutting-edge coverage of recent trends in law. Drawing from the combined legal and practical experience of the authors—a judge and a law professor—the text gives you firsthand insights into the American legal system, and its simple, nonlegal language makes it easier to read than other law books. Featuring relevant cases-in-point throughout the text, the authors encourage you not only to learn but also to really think about and understand the law. A new student website also offers samples of case briefings, which provide excellent examples to model your own briefings after. CRIMINAL LAW, Fifth Edition, also utilizes extensive case material, covers the historical background of criminal law, and includes the latest Supreme Court decisions. This is one of two updated "splits" of the combined CRIMINAL LAW AND PROCEDURE, Sixth Edition (c. 2008), by the same authors.
