Introduction to Criminal Law

Russell L. Weaver

For the first time there is a Criminal Law textbook specifically geared to Master's level or undergraduate legal studies/law courses on the subject. The book, written by well-known legal scholars, fills a void. Master's In Legal Studies programs have become quite commonplace in the United States, and, additionally there are colleges experimenting with new undergraduate law programs. Faculty teaching in those programs, or teaching in Criminal Justice classes, however, typically have three imperfect choices if they want to use the case method of teaching law: 1) they use a Juris Doctor level casebook but assign substantially less material from the book; 2) they use a simplistic undergraduate or high school level textbook; or 3) they develop their own materials.This textbook, then, offers a perfect alternative. First, each chapter begins with an overview of the law on the subject covered for simple and easy access. The book that contains thought provoking problems designed to stimulate thought and produce interesting classroom discussion. The hypos are woven throughout the chapters and are designed to help students learn doctrine, illuminate trends in the law, and ultimately produce better learning. The book is also meant to teach practical skills to students going into the field. Some of the problems place students in practical situations that they are likely to encounter in a criminal justice career, and therefore encourage students to think about how they might handle those situations in real-life. The book is designed to be a very affordable paperback.

Constitutional Criminal Procedure

Andrew E. Taslitz

The January 2021 Capitol Hill riots, the summer 2020 Black Lives Matter protests, the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, the wave of state and local reforms to policing powers, and increasingly pervasive use of technology in criminal investigations are the contemporary national issues that are captured in the Sixth Edition of Constitutional Criminal Procedure.The Sixth Edition offers maximum pedagogical freedom to craft an exciting course using seminal U.S. Supreme Court cases, sample court documents, illuminating graphics, and problem-solving opportunities throughout a text that maintains its relevance and user-friendly structure for new and old adopters alike. It excerpts cutting-edge law review articles, emergent social science research, and interdisciplinary essays, as well as infusing insights from respected legal experts and other significant 21st century voices.The Sixth Edition also presents an exciting new co-author collaboration between former federal prosecutor, Professor Lenese C. Herbert of Howard University School of Law, and Professor Cynthia E. Jones of the American University Washington College of Law, who worked as a trial attorney at the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia and later became the agency director. Both experienced law professors, Professors Herbert and Jones have made effective use of their "across-the-aisle" collaboration in the Sixth Edition of Constitutional Criminal Procedure.The Sixth Edition infuses more contemporary materials in a more accessible format for a broader range of adopters and students. It includes:Original charts, tables, and graphs that summarize certain complex constitutional principles (that also benefit visual learners, currently estimated at 65% of the population);A NEW chapter that contextualizes race and policing, as well as the high-profile cases that led to the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests and the myriad of criminal justice reforms that have resulted (e.g., "Breonna's Law" which eliminates no-knock warrants; "Defund/Reform the Police" efforts; newly promulgated "use of deadly force" restrictions);Use of warrant affidavits filed in connection with the January 2021 Capitol Hill riots to illustrate probable cause, and the effective use of technology in law enforcement;A NEW chapter dedicated to motions to suppress and pretrial suppression hearings which includes trial documents and pleadings, specifically: the defense motion to dismiss, the government's opposition, and the court's published opinion (tools that support both doctrinal and clinical adopters who seek "real world," tactical learning tools);SHORTER, more "teachable" chapters (edited with an eye toward syllabi/class hour needs and designed to enhance learning, given the sustained and shifting attention span concerns of 21st teaching);An EXPANDED Surveillance Chapter re: criminal procedure and the law of emerging technologies (e.g., geofencing, facial recognition technology, the Internet of Things);UPDATED problems; andFederal circuit court citations of note (which illustrate relevant examples of innovative lawyering, creative adjudication, application of precedent, and "circuit split").

Leading Cases in Constitutional Law, A Compact Casebook for a Short Course, 2021

Jesse H. Choper

An annually-revised paperback designed for a single-semester course on constitutional law, this book is roughly half the length of many hardcover casebooks. The four renowned authors, now including Michael Dorf and Frederick Schauer, are co-editors of a long-time favorite teaching book, the much larger and newly revised Constitutional Law: Cases, Comments & Questions, 13th Edition. "Leading Cases," which is a stripped-down version of that book, contains "the essentials" for teaching a basic course in constitutional law. Because the organization of the compact book parallels that of the much lengthier Choper - Dorf - Fallon - Schauer casebook, which contains extensive Notes & Questions, the latter can serve as a "resource" book for instructors teaching from the paperback. This edition of "Leading Cases" is up to date through the completion of the Supreme Court Term that ended in June 2021. Subsequent editions of "Leading Cases" will continue to be published every summer for classroom use in the fall and will include all the significant cases handed down during the most recent Supreme Court Term.
