Product Description

The title of this Nutshell, which is also the usual title of the corresponding law school course, may be misleading. "Advanced Criminal Procedure" would seem to suggest an "Advanced" treatment of issues addressed in "Criminal Procedure." This book is not, however, a further inquiry into the constitutional constraints on police investigation—the subject of Criminal Procedure—but an examination of the procedural aspects of a criminal case once the investigation is complete. The book begins with a discussion of the legal doctrines governing the decision to file formal charges, and ends with the procedures for appeal and collateral attack of the conviction. This Nutshell might more accurately be titled "Procedural Aspects of the Prosecution and Adjudication of a Criminal Case," or, less elegantly, "Criminal Procedures from Bail to Jail."

Table of Contents includes:
The Decision to Prosecute;
Pretrial Detention and Release;
The Preliminary Hearing;
The Grand Jury;
Discovery and Disclosure;
Time Limitations;
The Location of the Prosecution;
Joinder and Severance;
Double Jeopardy;
Guilty Please and Plea-Bargaining;
Assistance of Counsel;
The Tribunal: Impartial Judge and Jury;
The Trial;
Appeal and Collateral Attack.

Don't let their small size fool you: West's Law in a Nutshell series represents the depth and breadth of the law in over a hundred different areas. Nutshells have a loyal following who swear by their succinct and easy to understand treatment of the law, and this particular title is a great illustration that learning the law doesn't have to be dry and confusing.
