This popular casebook, through the selection of classic and modern cases, provides an excellent tool for teaching students the common law foundations of the criminal law and modern statutory reform, including the Model Penal Code. Along the way, the casebook considers modern controversies (e.g., "shaming" punishment, capital punishment, broadening sexual assault law, self-defense by battered women, euthanasia, the role of culture in determining culpability), and creatively uses literature (e.g., examining insanity through Edgar Allen Poe's The-Tell Tale Heart) and even "brain teasers" to confront (as the Preface states) "the Big Questions . . . that philosophers, theologians, scientists, and poets, as well as lawyers, have grappled with for centuries." The Seventh Edition, as in the past, includes new cases, as well as updates in the notes that bring current issues of criminal law to the fore. New Power Points have been added to the casebook companion website.

To view or download the 2022 Supplement to this book click here. This book offers a comprehensive survey of the major concepts and doctrines in criminal law, describing both the common law and the Model Penal Code approaches to each issue. A unique feature of this book is that the cases used to illustrate major concepts are designed to be provocative and teachable. The facts of virtually every case lend themselves to creative teaching and lively class discussion and will stick in the memories of both instructor and students. Meanwhile, the lucidly organized notes following the cases deliver both doctrine and interesting highlights clearly and concisely. The new edition also incorporates the most recent significant cases and scholarship, including recent application of traditional criminal law concepts in more complex "modern" contexts such as white collar crime. Special features of the book include: The authors discuss recent criminal law cases "in the news" as well as contemporary debates on controversial criminal law issues such as rape and capital punishment. The book introduces and employs theoretical perspectives in a clear and accessible way. These materials encourage students to understand and apply various approaches to criminal law issues, including liberalism, feminism, critical race theory, and victims' rights. Like its predecessor, this edition has detailed and inclusive coverage of modern-day property crimes, and reflects sophisticated contemporary thinking about homicide and rape. The book's extensive treatment of recent white collar corporate prosecutions invites consideration of the controversies that arise when traditional criminal law concepts are applied to civil and corporate disputes. The cases and commentaries clearly and thoroughly present the causation issues that arise in criminal cases, the crime of attempt, group criminality, and defenses. The authors draw attention to the intersection of civil and criminal liability, encouraging students to consider the differences between criminal law and other forms of legal regulation.

International Criminal Law provides a set of teaching materials furnishing students with a grounding in the transnational issues likely to arise in federal criminal cases, and also in the law produced as a consequence of international efforts to impose criminal responsibility on the perpetrators of human rights atrocities. International Criminal Law offers, for teaching purposes, a collection of cases (mainly domestic) and other materials, together with notes and questions about those cases and materials. The first part introduces the field of international criminal law, and includes a chapter on the general principles of both domestic and international law governing efforts to apply U.S. criminal law to foreign crimes and foreign criminals. The second part covers the specific application of those principles to cases involving the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, antitrust and securities regulation, export controls, computer crimes, narcotics and money laundering, piracy and terrorism, and torture. The third part addresses procedural aspects of trying such cases in U.S. courts. This section also treats the extraterritorial application of the U.S. Constitution, immunities from jurisdiction, mutual assistance in criminal cases, extradition, alternatives to extradition, prisoner transfers, recognition of foreign criminal judgments, and the bearing on international human rights instruments on criminal procedure. The final part of International Criminal Law deals with the prosecution of international crimes, and takes up the question of what crimes constitute international crimes. This section also discusses the Nuremberg and Tokyo precedents, the ad hoc tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and for Rwanda, the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, and the substantive law of international crimes such as aggression, genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. International Criminal Law is supplemented annually. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

From a preeminent authorship team, Criminal Law and its Processes: Cases and Materials, Tenth Edition, continues in the tradition of its best-selling predecessors by providing students not only with a cohesive policy framework through which they can understand and examine the use of criminal laws as a means for social control but also analytic tools to understand and apply important criminal law doctrines. Instead of presenting the elements of various crimes in a disjointed fashion, Criminal Law and its Processes: Cases and Materials focuses on having students develop a nuanced understanding of the underlying principles, rules, and policy rationales that inform all criminal laws. A cases-and-notes pedagogy along with scholarly excerpts, questions, and notes, provides students with a rich foundation for not only the academic examination of criminal laws but also the application of the law to real-world scenarios. Features: Retains prior edition’s principal cases and Notes and Questions approach to explain and probe fundamental concepts. Notes updated to incorporate contemporary cases and recent news touching on criminal law. Inclusion of additional preeminent cases in the field of criminal law, including: Yates v. United States, 135 S. Ct. 1074, (Supreme Court application of common statutory interpretation techniques and the rule of lenity) Rosamond v. United States, 134 S. Ct. 1240, (Supreme Court examination of accomplice liability) Perry v. Florida (examination of the agreement requirement for conspiracy through the lens of a Florida sexual battery offense). Theft (chapter 9) substantially revised to include new principal case dealing with trespassers takers in the credit card context. Expanded discussion of: mass incarceration and prosecutorial/law enforcement discretion; and, the intersections between race and criminal la
