Overview

"...Invaluable as a quick reference for the dozens of terms, case names, and criminal concepts buzzing back and forth in (New York) court." Leonard E. Sienko, Jr. (blog post August 3, 2008).

"...A handy (work) when you can't distinguish Jenna's Law (sentencing of violent felons) from Buster's Law (animal cruelty), when a drug case witness starts muttering about hamburger helper (dilutants added to narcotics to increase volume and profits) or a prosecutor demands a blood sucker order (an involuntary blood test, often requested in DWI cases)." John Caher, New York Law Journal

"If you go into criminal court and you don't know what '30.30 (a dismissal for speedy-trial violation found at CPL 30.30) or a '710.30' notice is (notice regarding evidence subject to suppression found at CPL 710.30), you are one hurting buckaroo", according to Muldoon.

While not a replacement for Black's, Slanguage is an excellent complement to your toolbox. Hundreds of terms have been included and this new 5th edition updates and expands on the previous edition which was published by LexisNexis.

Criminal law attorneys handling cases in New York will be at a severe disadvantage without the aid of Murray and Muldoon's work.
