Weaver, Burkoff, and Hancock's Criminal Procedure: A Contemporary Approach, 2d
Russell L. Weaver, John M. Burkoff, Catherine Hancock
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.
Additionally, this title utilizes the CasebookPlus™ platform. Anchored by faculty-authored self-assessments, CasebookPlus allows students to test their understanding of core concepts as they are learning them in class with quizzes keyed to each chapter, subject area review quizzes, and helpful explanations from the Hornbook Series®.
