Product Description

Comprehensive Criminal Procedure is a casebook for all introductory courses in criminal procedure law (including both investigation and adjudication courses, as well as comprehensive and survey courses).  The casebook focuses primarily on constitutional criminal procedure law, but also covers relevant statutes and court rules.  The casebook is deliberately challenging—it is designed for teachers who want to explore deeply not only the contemporary state of the law, but also its historical and theoretical foundations.  The casebook incorporates a particular emphasis on empirical knowledge about the real-world impacts of law-in-action; the significance of race and class; the close relationship between criminal procedure law and substantive criminal law; the cold reality that hard choices sometimes must be made in a world of limited criminal justice resources; and, finally, the recognition that criminal procedure law always should strive to achieve both fairness to the accused and justice for society as a whole.

Features:
• We have added a wonderful new co-author, Yale Professor Tracey Meares, whose special expertise in the law and policy of police investigations has enriched the casebook tremendously.
• The Introduction chapter has been updated with a number of new scholarly writings that provide an overview of important aspects of criminal procedure law.
• The Right to Counsel chapter incorporates the new wave of structural reform litigation over the often-crushing caseloads and frequently inadequate resources of public defender offices; the chapter has also been completely reorganized for clarity and ease of teaching.
• The chapter on Boyd v. United States has been revised in light of the recent apparent revival of at least some aspects of that decision, and its newfound relevance to contemporary criminal procedure law.
• The Fourth and Fifth Amendment chapters, together with the chapter on Complex Investigations, have been completely rewritten to reflect the latest legal, social, and empirical developments in such important areas as police discretion (including stop-and-frisk and police use of force) and data searches (including searches of cell phones and e-mails, GPS and other forms of location monitoring, government investigative use of digital records, and legal protections for computer passwords and encryption keys). 
• The Jury and the Criminal Trial chapter has been revised to include the latest developments concerning the Confrontation Clause and the continuing evolution of the Crawford doctrine.
• The Sentencing chapter has been updated to include the most recent of the Supreme Court’s line of Apprendi/Blakely/Booker decisions.
• All chapters in the casebook have been updated wherever necessary, and all have been re-edited and streamlined to improve their teachability.
