Product Description

Mastering Criminal Law provides a clear and concise consideration of the fundamental structure of a crime, including statutory interpretation and sentencing. It has chapters on the typical crimes covered in most criminal law casebooks, namely homicide, rape, assault and battery, and theft. It extends the study to newer forms of crimes, such as criminal enterprises, and includes chapters on accomplice liability, solicitation, attempt and conspiracy. The book covers the traditional defenses seen in criminal law courses and also examines the concept of what is a defense. Cultural defenses and the right to present a defense are included. Many factual examples come from real-world cases. The learning tools used throughout the book provide an overview of the subject, reinforcement of basic principles, and a better understanding of criminal law principles.

The Mastering Series is designed to provide law students the critical tools needed to easily and efficiently master the substance and content of various law school courses. All books in the series are easy to read, with key terms emphasized and explained. Footnotes and cites to secondary sources are used sparingly, allowing the reader to concentrate on the essential material. To facilitate the mastery of topics, the Mastering Series includes key features designed to improve learning and retention:

At the beginning of each chapter, a Roadmap introduces the chapter and provides readers with an overview of the material that will be covered. This list of bulleted points clearly maps out the direction of the chapter, covering all key topics.

Checkpoints at the end of each chapter encourage readers to stop and review the key concepts, reiterating what has been learned. These points serve as an excellent mechanism for double-checking knowledge.

Finally, a Master Checklist at the end of each book reinforces what has been covered and helps readers identify any areas that need review or further study. The Master Checklist is a perfect tool for self-assessing one’s mastery of the material.
