Criminal Procedure: Investigation and Right to Counsel is for courses on criminal procedure law that focus on the issues pertaining to the investigation of criminal activities. It is a spin-off of Comprehensive Criminal Procedure, by the same team of authors, which covers both the investigatory and adjudicatory aspects of criminal procedure law. The casebook focuses primarily on constitutional criminal procedure law, but also covers relevant statutes and court rules. The casebook is deliberately challenging it is designed for teachers who want to explore deeply not only the contemporary state of the law, but also its historical and theoretical foundations. The casebook incorporates a particular emphasis on empirical knowledge about the real-world impacts of law-in-action; the significance of race and class; the close relationship between criminal procedure law and substantive criminal law; the cold reality that hard choices sometimes must be made in a world of limited criminal justice resources; and, finally, the recognition that criminal procedure law always should strive to achieve both fairness to the accused and justice for society as a whole.

Genre: Law

Criminal Procedure reflects a balanced blend of conventional casebook style, practice problems, concise text, and sample forms and documents that stresses the interplay of constitutional principles and practical considerations that confront both prosecution and defense attorneys. The organizational structure of previous editions is retained and three major subject areas are explored in depth: • Arrest, Search, and Seizure; • Right to Counsel; and • Confessions The book contains a host of new and quite fascinating materials related to recent decisions from the Supreme Court. Cases involving the construction of the good faith exception to the exclusionary rule, a rethinking of the car search doctrine, reaffirmation of the McNabb / Mallory rule, and numerous others, will contribute to interesting discussions with students. This book is designed to promote a high-quality classroom experience. Lengthy Supreme Court decisions have been substantially edited, although the "flavor" of the constitutional views of the various Justices has been retained. The insertion of sample forms is intended to illustrate the manner in which Supreme Court edict has filtered down to work-a-day law enforcement and prosecution. Problems, for the most part extracted from lower court decisions, serve to demonstrate the vague parameters of Supreme Court pronouncements while providing the student with an engaging and practical approach to understanding, analyzing, and applying the doctrine. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
