New Criminal Law Casebook by CrimProfs Cynthia Lee and Angela Harris

Lee Congratulations to Cynthia Lee (George Washington University) and Angela Harris (Boalt Hall School of Law, UC Berkeley), who have teamed up to produce a brand new Criminal Law casebook, published by West earlier this year. Their casebook provides a fresh perspective on the criminal law, highlighting issues of race, gender, and sexual orientation where applicable, while keeping a fairly traditional organizational focus. A special feature of the book is the introductory text that appears at the outset of each chapter and at the beginning of most sections. These introductory comments provide a doctrinal roadmap for the student reader. Instead of bullet lists of notes and questions following the cases, Lee and Harris include such questions and possible answers in the Teachers Manual.  [Jack Chin]
