Written in the student-friendly style that characterizes Chemerinsky's Constitutional Law casebook, Criminal Procedure features cases, minor cases, and author-written essays while omitting both notes in the form of rhetorical questions and excerpts from law review articles. The chronological organization moves through the criminal justice process, from investigation to habeas corpus. Dynamic text guides students through understanding the law with tightly-edited cases, samples of legal pleadings arguing the issues, and perspectives from prosecutors, defense, counsel, judges, police, and victims alike. Each chapter has a consistent, systematic approach, beginning with an introduction laying out the nature of the issue, followed by a discussion on the history and development of the law. Then, examples of recent and seminal cases reveal how key criminal procedure issues have been raised, and an analytic approach toward resolving each issue shows what worked and why. The Second Edition has been thoroughly updated and provides analysis of the impact of important recent decisions, such as Arizona v. Gant, Herring v. U.S., Berghuis v. Thompkins, Maryland v. Shatzer, Montejo v. Louisiana, Perry v. New Hampshire, Frye v. Missouri, Lafler v. Cooper, and Williams v. Illinois. In addition, the Second Edition examines new decisions affecting right to counsel, right to fair trial, and habeas corpus law. New supplemental handouts and practice materials are available on the companion website.

Criminal Procedure: Adjudication and Right to Counsel is for courses on criminal procedure law that focus on the issues pertaining to the adjudication of criminal cases.

Jens Ohlin’s Criminal Law is designed to respond to the changing nature of law teaching by offering a shorter, flexible, and more doctrinal approach, with an emphasis on application. Materials are presented, in a visually lively style, via a consistently structured pedagogy within each chapter: Doctrine (treatise-like explanation), Application (cases), and Practice/Policy (questions providing an opportunity for normative critique of the law and exploration of practical and strategic challenges facing criminal lawyers). Theory is integrated into the doctrine section rather than conveyed through law review excerpts, so as to help students make the necessary connections to doctrinal issues. Aggressively-edited cases help keep the length to a minimum, and modern cases will engage younger students and professors. Key Features: New chapter titled “Other Offenses Against the Person,” which includes coverage of physical battery, assault, and kidnapping (Chapter 15). Integrated notes throughout the casebook directing students to view a series of 20 short video clips that bring the doctrinal controversies to life in a fictional courtroom. More cases added to represent the plurality of approaches in different jurisdictions. The addition of several “classic” criminal law cases familiar to law school professors. More examples in the “Doctrine” section of each chapter. “Practice and Policy” section in each chapter urges students to consider how the various actors in the process (prosecutors, defense counsel, judges and juries) make particular decisions and the strategic calculations that informed them, and make this casebook more practice-ready than others Innovative pedagogy emphasizes application of law to facts (while still retaining enough flexibility so as to be useful for a variety of professors with different teaching styles)
