In a criminal procedure class, students are asked to determine whether a citizen's constitutional rights were violated, and this question is consistently posed under a myriad of factual circumstances. In order to answer the query, students would need to examine and discuss the United States Supreme Court's interpretations of the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments of the US Constitution, identifying many tests and standards from those examinations and spirited discussions. Criminal Procedure: Model Problems and Outstanding Answers documents a few of the United States Supreme Court's tests and standards from these amendments to provide a more accurate assessment of whether a "right" under the Constitution has retained its full vitality, or whether it has been modified or made less vital than originally intended. Oxford University Press equips students with an accessible guide to acing challenging criminal procedure law exams. In Criminal Procedure: Model Problems and Outstanding Answers, Carlton Bailey helps students demonstrate their knowledge of criminal procedure in the structured and sophisticated manner that professors expect on law school exams. This book provides clear introductions on the fundamental topics in criminal procedure, provides hypotheticals similar to those that students can expect to see on an exam (including multi-issue questions), and offers model answers to those hypotheticals. Professor Bailey then coaches students in how to evaluate their own work with a comprehensive self-analysis section. This book prepares students by challenging them to use the law they learn in class while also explaining the best way to express sophisticated answers on law school exams.

Law students often find criminal law to be one of the most interesting, but also one of the most difficult courses. Even the fundamental elements of criminal liability can be hard to learn and even harder to apply on exams.

Überwachen und Strafen Im Panoptikum, Jeremy Benthams idealem Gefängnis- und Erziehungsbau, werden die Delinquenten permanenter Überwachung durch einen Aufseher unterzogen, der im Mittelpunkt eines kreisförmigen Gebäudes sitzt. Aber zu welchem Zweck? Michel Foucault interpretierte in seinem Werk Überwachen und Strafen (1975) Benthams Bau als Prototyp für die latente Perversion bürgerlicher Aufklärung, die Schizophrenie eines Liberalismus, der stets das Gute will und stets das Böse schafft. Aber stimmt das wirklich? Die erste deutsche Übersetzung von Panoptikum offenbart die Aktualität von Benthams Gedankenwelt. Als Begründer des Utilitarismus und Anhänger des Wirtschaftsliberalismus war er davon überzeugt, dass der Kapitalismus der wahre Schlüssel zum Glück des Menschen ist - und nichts anderes als den Weg zum Glück wollte er mit dem Panoptikum jedem Menschen ebnen. Ebook-Version ohne Interview mit Michel Foucault.
