The third edition of California Criminal Litigation in Action tracks a criminal case from arrest through sentencing. Students learn about criminal litigation by participating in simulation exercises at various stages of the case. For example, students participate in bail review hearings, preliminary hearings, grand jury proceedings, motion hearings, the exchange of discovery, plea negotiations, and sentencing hearings. The book also includes drafting exercises (motions and sentencing memoranda) as well as fact-management/fact-development exercises (evidence marshaling, interviewing, and counseling). 

This book is vital to students and others planning a career in California criminal litigation. It ambitiously strives to create practice-ready law students and new attorneys. While the book is explicitly focused on criminal litigation in the California trial courts, it is readily adaptable for use in other jurisdictions. Instructors will find the teaching materials to be both comprehensive and easy to incorporate.
