9780135042618: Criminal Law Today

For courses in Criminal Law

It brings the criminal law to life by relating it to real-life stories taken from today’s headlines.  Also loaded with new graphic color illustrations of key concepts.

 

The approach has been strongly influenced by the belief that the law has always been, and remains, a vital policy-making tool. As a topic for study and discussion, the nature and life of the law is more important today than ever before. The challenges that face the law as it continues to adapt to the needs of a complex and rapidly changing society are highlighted in this text and serve to emphasize for readers the contemporary relevance of our ever-evolving American criminal law.

 

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.
