A client comes to a lawyer with a difficult legal problem, involving a complex set of facts. The lawyer then researches the legal issues, finding a cluster of cases and statutes - almost all from the jurisdiction in which the problem arises. In order to advise the client (and, if necessary, to litigate the case), the lawyer must analyze, distinguish, reconcile, and interrelate the authorities in the cluster, seeing them as a group indicating the direction of that state's law, as well as seeing them separately. Cases and Problems in Criminal Law contains the caselaw that law students have to know and helps professors to recreate that experience so their students can learn how to handle it. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

This book emphasizes cases and problems as a vehicle for teaching students how to read and understand cases and statutes and to construct legal arguments. The cases are presented in relatively complete form, often with concurring and dissenting opinions in order to give students examples of fully developed legal arguments. The many short problems throughout the book are all taken from real cases and ask the students to develop the appropriate legal arguments based on the cases they have read. Each chapter begins with an introduction to give background to the cases and to outline the issues to be explored. Notes, which have been kept to a minimum, are generally used to extend the students' analysis by asking them to consider theoretical or policy issues raised by the cases or alternative approaches contained in the Model Penal Code or other jurisdictions. The Third Edition includes many new and influential California cases, as well as new problems, continuing the commitment to showing the students current developments in the criminal law.

This unique coursebook attempts to recreate for law students the experience that lawyers have when analyzing the procedural issues involved in the investigatory phase of a criminal case. This approach not only enhances learning but also makes learning enjoyable since students get to play lawyer. At the outset of each chapter, a complex problem is presented in the form of a memo to a law clerk working in a variety of settings (reporting to a public defender, prosecutor, judge or private criminal defense attorney). The problem is followed by the research tools--relevant cases and statutes--necessary to solve the problem. Notes follow many cases, suggesting to students how the cases might be used to analyze the problem. They also contain summaries of recent cases which may give students a broader perspective on how courts are handling the issues raised by the main cases. This book focuses on criminal procedure under the United States Constitution. Cases are edited sparingly, and many dissents and concurring opinions are included. The cases are presented in chronological order within a topic so that students can see how doctrines or laws developed historically.

Criminal Law: Cases, Materials, and Problems, Third Edition, focuses on basic principles of Anglo-American criminal law and is designed for use in an introductory course in Criminal Law, either in a law school or an undergraduate program in Criminal Justice, taught by teachers who use the case method of instruction. The book includes cases and statutes from various jurisdictions, as well as excerpts from the Model Penal Code. In addition, the author has strategically placed problems throughout the book so students can apply the law set forth in the cases and statutes to new fact situations, thereby allowing them to test their knowledge and reinforce their understanding of the relevant legal principles. The goal of the book is twofold: first, to help students gain an understanding of the general principles of Anglo-American criminal law; second, to aid students to develop their skills in case analysis, statutory interpretation, synthesis of cases, and problem-solving. David S. Rudstein is Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Program in Criminal Litigation at Chicago-Kent College of Law, Illinois Institute of Technology, where he has been teaching Criminal Law to first-semester students since 1973. Professor Rudstein received a J.D., cum laude, from Northwestern University, and an LL.M. from the University of Illinois. After receiving his law degrees he served for a year as law clerk to Justice Walter V. Schaefer of the Supreme Court of Illinois. Professor Rudstein is a member of the American Bar Association and the Chicago Council of Lawyers. In addition to having edited casebooks on criminal law and criminal procedure, he has written a book on the double jeopardy provision of the United States Constitution, is co-author of a three-volume treatise entitled Criminal Constitutional Law, and has published numerous law review articles on various aspects of constitutional criminal procedure.
