Overview

Criminal Law and Procedure for the Paralegal: A Systems Approach, third Edition prepares paralegals in the principles of criminal law as well as in the practice skills needed daily in the law office. Presented in a clear, logical, outline format, the text includes effective learning features such as charts, checklists, forms, documents, legal terminology, helpful web sites, a systems folder, and numerous illustrative case examples. This comprehensive text blends theory with practice and incorporates insights into the fascinating world of crime and criminals and the legal professionals who work within the justice system. Important features of the text include sections on the criminal justice standards unique to prosecution, defense, and the court; coverage of the often competing rationales and public policies behind the law and judicial decisions; discussion of the impact of the PATRIOT Act and the war on terrorism; the many opportunities for students to apply both critical thinking and law-office practice skills; and interesting and, occasionally, humorous quotations relevant to criminal justice. The text's clear presentation of the law and its many unique features make it popular among students and instructors alike. Students will have the opportunity to draft legal documents, perform legal research, use the Internet, practice legal writing skills, and apply case law. The systems approach used in the text continues to be one of its most popular features, and the clear, concise, yet thorough presentation of concepts and skills leads to the development of a more thoughtful and accurate professional.
