This book describes the formal rules and informal practices involved in the development and resolution of a criminal case, from the decision to charge to disposition by trial or plea, and sentencing. Analysis of the work of prosecutors and defense attorneys in a hypothetical case helps students to contexualize criminal procedure doctrine by demonstrating the way in which the attorney applies constitutional and statutory law. The Practice of Federal Criminal Law: Prosecution and Defense can be used in conjunction with criminal procedure courses using traditional casebooks as well as in skills training courses and prosecution and defense clinics.

The Sixth Edition is an entire reworking of this classic casebook. Beyond its traditional role in teaching a broad-gauge federal criminal law course, the book is well suited for use in white collar crime courses or seminars. For example, the fraud materials focus on business practices uncovered in the current economic meltdown. New chapters and new sections include Corporate Criminal Liability (new chapter 9), the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (chapter 5, section E), Plea Bargaining after Lafler and Frye (chapter 17 Part B), corporate plea, cooperation, and deferred-prosecution agreements (chapter 17, Section C), and general defenses to federal criminal liability (chapter 8, Section E). All chapters have been substantially revamped, reflecting recent Supreme Court rulings, new case law and statutory changes in the areas of mail fraud, obstruction, money laundering, terrorism, and weapons offense, and death penalty enhancements for Controlled Substance Act violations.

Defining Crimes, by the distinguished author team of William J. Stuntz (late of Harvard) and Joseph L. Hoffmann (Indiana), breaks from the tradition of Model Penal Code-centric casebooks and focuses instead on the rich intellectual and theoretical issues that arise from how crimes actually get defined and applied today by state and federal legislatures, trial and appellate courts, police, prosecutors, defense lawyers, and juries. The innovative approach of Defining Crimes enables the in-depth study of the problems and issues that affect the day-to-day contemporary practice of criminal law.

Federal Criminal Practice combines substantive Federal Criminal Law, Federal Criminal Procedure, and the Federal Rules of Evidence, with a mock case. Students apply what they learn in a manner that expands their understanding. Course materials consist of a textbook, mock case materials, and a teacher's manual. The mock case involves an arson committed to collect insurance proceeds. Classes involve lectures, discussion, and written and oral exercises. Students write a search warrant application, an indictment, and a substantive exhibit/witness list. Students examine witnesses before the grand jury, conduct voir dire, present opening statements and closing arguments, and conduct direct and cross examination.

It provides an overview of basic doctrine while inviting students to explore the many difficult and unsettled questions that continue to perplex judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and policymakers. Particularly since students' basic Criminal Law courses draw on penal laws from any number of jurisdictions, this book will be their first exposure to an actual criminal law system, in which each law-shaping institution can react to the moves of the others. Features: Provides a comprehensive overview of the many federal criminal offenses prosecutors use to charge political corruption and explores difficult questions associated with criminalizing aspects of the political process. Frames apparently diverse offenses like money laundering, RICO, and material support to terrorism as the complicity-broadening devices that make them intellectually interesting and practically potent. Uses "Notes and Questions" to situate major cases in their proper political and historical contexts, tie together topics from different parts of the book that touch on similar themes, and explore lingering doctrinal ambiguities.

This state-of the-art casebook is both easy and fun to use. It is designed to give you the basis for an enjoyable, comprehensive learning experience for your students, providing you with the sort of piquing materials that should prompt interested and insightful classroom discussion. The focus here is on teachability, rather than encyclopedic coverage of the field. The classic Supreme Court opinions are included, as well as numerous problem-style hypotheticals that are based on the facts of cutting-edge lower court rulings. The casebook also uses text boxes inside the judicial opinions to pose questions for class discussion, provide practice pointers, and share useful links to information about the history and impact of the decisions. This mixed presentation of traditional doctrines and debates about current legal issues allows your students to hone their analytical skills, as they learn to construct the arguments of today's prosecutors and defense counsel in criminal procedure litigation. As with other books in the Interactive Casebook series, an accompanying electronic version allows students immediate access to the full text of cited cases, statutes, articles, and other materials in the Westlaw database.
