Comparative Criminal Procedure Guide to English-language Resources
U of Chicago law profs Ginsburg and McAdams have compiled a list of selected English-language resources on comparative criminal procedure. The guide was produced for their Comparative Criminal Procedure Seminar. The "Resources by Subject" page contains materials organized by: 1) country or region and 2) notable sub-topics within criminal procedure. From the description:
It focuses on journal articles, book chapters, and treatises covering comparative criminal procedure generally, criminal procedure in multiple jurisdictions, and specialized research topics in comparative criminal procedure such as: arrest, pre-trial detention, interrogation, right to counsel, legal assistance for indigent defendants, discovery, plea bargaining, trial by jury, the privilege against self-incrimination, inquisitorial versus accusatorial systems, role of prosecutors, judges and defense attorneys, cross-examination, exclusionary rules, sentencing, death penalty, criminal appeals, and double jeopardy.
