This refreshing new alternative for the first-year Criminal Law course is a lively coursebook that blends text, statutes, cases, and problems in a presentation that is user-friendly for both students and instructors.

These distinctive characteristics make CRIMINAL LAW: A CONTEMPORARY APPROACH both effective and engaging:

  • shorter length and with a rich and diverse mix of materials that promotes intellectual challenge without sacrificing accessibility
  • the authors treat criminal law as an introduction to both statutes and cases and emphasize statutes as a primary source, with explicit treatment of statutory drafting and interpretation issues
  • goes beyond the traditional focus on the judiciary to also examine the role of the legislature and the executive in defining offenses
  • clear, direct text introduces statutes, cases, and problems
  • the materials support a wide array of teaching techniques to address varied student learning styles
  • within each section, the authors introduce the basics and then the materials grow progressively more challenging
  • includes both modern and classic criminal cases
  • includes material on ethics and highlights criminal law perspectives

    The casebook is part of a comprehensive teaching package that includes a videotape discussion of one of the homicide cases in the book, PowerPoint slides, and an extensive Teacher's Manual featuring:

  • support for a range of teaching options on each topic, such as problems, simulations, role plays, and the traditional question-and-answer approach
  • video suggestions
  • graphics that can be easily reproduced and customized
  • Recognition of the potential difficulty of teaching topics such as rape and domestic violence and detailed suggestions for teaching approaches to them
  • sample syllabi for three- and four-credit courses
