about

This contemporary text is part of Pearson’s groundbreaking “Justice Series,” and takes a fresh look at criminal law while maintaining a real-world focus.

 

Criminal Law is part of the groundbreaking new series in which best-selling authors and designers have come together focused on one goal - to improve student performance across the criminal justice curriculum. This text maintains a brief format, yet offers a comprehensive introduction to criminal law. The book presupposes no legal expertise, connects criminal law cases to the real world through innovative pedagogy, carefully examines the logic behind high-profile court decisions, and encourages students, through numerous decision making exercises, to be critical thinkers by putting them in the position of the judge, jury, prosecutor or defense attorney.
