This criminal law book is designed for the modern law student. It has dual goals — to transfer important knowledge about crimes and their creation to students and to help them gain a deeper understanding of that knowledge through a wide variety of teaching tools. To engage the modern student, the book includes topical cases, such as the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case, background boxes, and different kinds of problems aimed at multiple skills. The book provides broader perspectives of the criminal process and theories of punishment, but also examines the nuances and details of the elements of crimes as well.
This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific.
