Description

Delving into one of the most fascinating areas of legal practice, this book shows the real world of prosecutors, defense attorneys and paralegals in criminal law. Drawing on his experience as a criminal defense attorney, an assistant district attorney, and as a college instructor, the author brings the study of criminal law alive. Actual examples of criminal cases are investigated and explained, defenses are explored, and appellate processes are examined. In the initial chapters, readers are introduced to the foundations of criminal law and basic facts about three cases are presented. Each chapter then continues the account of the three prosecutions to illustrate chapter concepts. Significant supreme court case decisions and their applicability to criminal law are also analyzed in this intriguing read for paralegals.
