Criminal Law and Its Processes: Cases and Materials (Casebook)

Criminal Law and Its Processes: Cases and Materials (Casebook) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This eagerly-awaited revision of the #1 casebook in Criminal Law demonstrates once again that authors Kadish and Schulhofer know how to build on success. Maintaining best-seller status in a crowded field like Criminal Law requires equal attention to developments inside and outside the classroom. "Criminal Law and ITS Processes", Seventh Edition meets the challenge with characteristic intellectual integrity.

Longtime users will recognize the hallmarks of this superior treatment:

-- comprehensive coverage of guilt, punishment, exculpation, as well as rape, homicide and theft

-- cohesive intellectual framework — viewing criminal law as an institution for imposing responsibility and punishment as a means of societal control

-- cases chosen for their proven teaching value, combined with notes, excerpted materials, questions, and problems for maximum pedagogical effectiveness

-- problems test students understanding of applications and interactions of legal principles in the context of particular offenses.

-- full coverage of the Model Penal Code

-- addresses not only the conceptual and moral framework of criminal law, but also practical litigation realities and the ethical responsibilities of the criminal defense attorney

The Seventh Edition introduces a wealth of new material into the notes and carefully updates traditional topics:

-- new forms of punishment and control, such as "Megan's Law", "shaming", and sexually violent predator confinement

-- new commentary on classic cases, such as Regina v. Prince

-- substantial updating and reorganization of rape material, combining more concise coverage with greater depth in treatment of emerging issues and statutorysolutions

-- refined and streamlined section on mental disorder
