Written in a student-friendly manner, the fourth edition ofCriminal Procedure: Investigationeschews excessive reliance on rhetorical questions and law review excerpts in favor of comprehensive exploration of black letter law and current policy issues. Authored by a pair of well-respected criminal and constitutional law scholars, Criminal Procedure: Investigation utilizes a chronological approach that guides students through criminal procedure doctrine, from rules governing searches and seizures to the right to counsel. In addition to presenting the perspectives from various stakeholders (e.g. prosecutors, defense counsel, judges, police, and victims), the authors take care to provide students with useful, practice-oriented materials, including pleadings and motions papers. Criminal Procedure: Investigation not only employs a systemic approach that takes students through each step of criminal investigation, but also introduces issues at the forefront of modern criminal procedure debates.
