Description

Offering a unique modified case approach, Criminal Law, Ninth Edition, uses a wide sampling of federal and state statutes and cases to provide students with a comprehensive and contemporary introduction to the field.

Leading scholar and bestselling author Sue Titus Reid employs a student-friendly and engaging writing style, eliminating complicated legal jargon from case excerpts while addressing timely, provocative issues. By employing carefully excerpted court opinions and cases to illustrate important points, Reid gives students a taste of traditional case method without burdening them with massive amounts of legal material. She also weaves appellate court cases into each chapter--many of which focus on current events--in order to familiarize students with how the judiciary thinks about and responds to questions of law.
