From a newly expanded authorship team, Criminal Law Case Studies & Controversies, eschews traditional reliance on judicial opinions in favor of an innovative and dynamic method of criminal law instruction centered on statutory interpretation and case studies. Examination of real-world problems allows first-year law students to not only develop familiarity with criminal law doctrine necessary for potential careers as prosecutors or defense attorneys, but also hone crucial skills for general lawyering. With a revised layout of statutory and discussion materials, the text is now more streamlined and accessible to students. Further, provocative case studies provide a solid background for engaging class discussion and challenge students to tackle applying doctrine in real-world situations. 

Features:

  • Authorship team expanded to include two young and well-respected criminal law scholars: Michael Cahill and Shima Baradaran Baughman.
  • Additional and updated case studies and discussion material informed by the professors’ teaching experiences and designed to reinforce issues at the forefront of modern criminal law.
  • Revised layout of statutory and discussion materials to make the text more streamlined and accessible to students.
  • Expanded discussion of issues of modern professorial and student interest, including police use of defensive force, defensive killing of domestic abusers, dangerous but blameless offenders, principles of statutory interpretation, and principles for the distribution of criminal liability.
  • Completely revamped sections on theft offenses and possession offenses, and a very substantially revised section on sexual offenses.
