As a topic for study and discussion, the nature and life of the law is more important today than ever before.

Featuring a balanced text/casebook approach to meet the needs of instructors who prefer a textbook and instructors that prefer a casebook, Criminal Law Today 4e gives students and instructors an accessible, lively introduction to criminal law. Chapter-opening real-life stories and boxed features that illustrate criminal law in practice help students connect criminal law to real life, and a complete suite of in-text learning tools give students the resources they need to master the material presented in the text.
