"That relatively few criminal cases in this country are resolved by full Perry Mason-style strials is fairly common knowledge. Most cases are settled by a guilty plea after some form of negotiation over the charge or sentence. But why? The standard explanation is case pressure: the enormous volume of criminal cases, to be processed with limited staff, time and resources. . . . But a large body of new empirical research now demands that we re-examine plea negotiation. Milton Heumann's book, Plea Bargaining, strongly and explicitly attacks the case-pressure argument and suggests an alternative explanation for plea bargaining based on the adaptation of attorneys and judges to the local criminal court. The book is a significant and welcome addition to the literature. Heumann's investigation of case pressure and plea negotiation demonstrates solid research and careful analysis."—Michigan Law Review

Written in a student-friendly manner, the third edition of Criminal Procedure eschews reliance on rhetorical questions and law review excerpts in favor of comprehensive exploration of black letter law and trendsetting policy issues. Authored by a pair of well-respected criminal and constitutional law scholars, Criminal Procedure utilizes a chronological approach that guides students through criminal procedure doctrine from rules governing law enforcement investigation to matters related to habeas corpus relief. In addition to presenting the perspectives from various stakeholders (i.e., defense attorneys, judges, prosecutors, and victims), the authors take care to provide students with useful, practice-oriented materials, including pleadings and motions papers. Criminal Procedure not only employs a systemic approach that takes students through issues from policy to application of legal doctrine, but also introduces issues at the forefront of modern criminal procedure debates. Key Benefits: Straightforward writing style and dynamic text combined with clear and presenting thoughtfully edited principal and minor cases Intuitive chronological presentation of topics in an easy-to-understand approach from investigation to prosecution to post-conviction relief Systematic and cohesive exploration of policy on every issue, before moving on to the specifics of doctrine Useful examples for future and current criminal law practitioners Approachable organization based on common progression through criminal justice system Straight writing style that relies on cases and author essays rather than law review excerpts and strict Socratic rhetoric questions. Practice-oriented features, discussion of modern policy issues, useful example documents for practitioners.

The Fourth Edition of Criminal Litigation & Legal Issues in Criminal Procedure is designed to incorporate the substantive law of criminal procedure into a trial advocacy course. The traditional trial advocacy course is concerned almost exclusively with "skills training" (e.g., learning techniques for cross-examining a witness), but does not incorporate much, if any, substantive law. Conversely, a traditional substantive course on criminal law or criminal procedure focuses exclusively on legal principles and doctrine, but does not involve training students in courtroom advocacy skills concerning substantive law. In Criminal Litigation & Legal Issues in Criminal Procedure, author Brent Newton merges elements from these two types of courses into one and seeks to bridge the gap between them. The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

Each E&E offers hypothetical questions complemented by detailed explanations that allow you to test your knowledge of the topics in your courses and compare your own analysis.

It offers coverage that works with ALL the major casebooks, and suits any class on a given topic. The Examples & Explanations series has been ranked the most popular study aid among law students because it is equally as helpful from the first day of class through the final exam.
