Focusing on the adjudicative phase of criminal procedure, Criminal Procedure: Adjudication, Third Edition combines Laurie L. Levenson s first-hand experience in the criminal justice system with Erwin Chemerinsky s student-friendly writing style. This volume examines the impact of a host of recent developments in the courts and legislature on the trial process. It eschews reliance on rhetorical questions and law review excerpts in favor of comprehensive exploration of black letter law and trendsetting policy issues. The book utilizes a chronological approach that guides students through criminal procedure doctrine. In addition to presenting the perspectives from various stakeholders (i.e., defense attorneys, judges, prosecutors, and victims), the authors take care to provide students with useful, practice-oriented materials, including pleadings and motions papers. Criminal Procedure: Adjudication not only employs a systemic approach that takes students through issues from policy to application of legal doctrine but also introduces issues at the forefront of modern criminal procedure debates.
