CRIMINAL LAW: CONCEPTS AND PRACTICE

Authors: Ellen S. Podgor, Peter J. Henning, Andrew Tazlitz, Alfredo Garcia

The unique problems in the book allow for the exploration of policy considerations behind the rules and also allow for practice in interpreting statutes. Unlike many books, Criminal Law incorporates the Model Penal Code into the chapters without offering these provisions as the end-ofthe-line in the statutory evolution of criminal law. The cases in this book are current decisions, and discussions of gender, race, culture, and transnational and international matters offer a truly comprehensive study of criminal law. Unique to this book are relevant materials concerning scientific evidence, noting how this evidence plays a part in broader problems of trial proof, planning, credibility, and negotiation. The book stresses strategies and ethics in the exploration of traditional material as well as cutting edge topics.

A teacher’s manual will be available.

is a criminal law casebook that approaches the subject from a modern and practical perspective. It incorporates traditional methodology important to this required course, namely the teaching of statutory interpretation, but also provides a new dimension in preparing lawyers with the appropriate skills, strategies, and ethics that are important in the practice of criminal law.
