Procedures in the Justice System, 10e, is comprehensive yet readable. Designed for one-semester courses on American criminal courts, it covers the court systems and processes using a sequential approach—following law violators from arrest to conviction and sentencing.

Down-to-earth examples, illustrations, court documents, and cases help make procedures more real and concrete.
