Combining first-hand knowledge of the criminal procedure system with stellar constitutional law scholarship, Levenson and Chemerinsky now offer a free-standing and student-friendly casebook that focuses on the adjudication phase of criminal procedure.

Written in the eminently articulate style that characterizes Chemerinsky’s Constitutional Law casebook, Criminal Procedure: Adjudication offers:

straightforward essays by the authors that illuminate principal and minor cases
a first-chapter overview of criminal procedure that looks at:

• the roles of the participants
• the progression of a case through the system
• key procedural rules and governing principles
• the Incorporation Doctrine
• the test for determining when new procedural rules should be applied retroactively

a consistent and systematic chapter structure that:

• introduces the topic
• discusses the history and development of the law
• cites examples from recent cases where the key issues have been raised
• offers an analytic critique of the resolution of the issues

chronologically organized chapter topics that mirror the sequential ordering of the adjudication process
samples of legal pleadings that exemplify attorneys’ actual arguments
a panoramic perspective on practice as conveyed through the eyes of prosecutors, defense counsel, judges, police, and victims
Supreme Court cases from the 2006-2007 term
a detailed Teacher’s Manual that offers questions and answers to support teaching and fuel class discussion
an expanded teaching package that includes PowerPoint slides, a DVD that presents the facts and backgrounds of several key cases, and an author website

Sure, it is a pleasure to teach and to read, but you could decide to adopt it simply for the wealth of experience and expertise that Chemerinsky and Levenson bring to their subject.
