Bringing criminal law to life.

Criminal Law Today, 6/e, brings criminal law to life by relating it to real stories from today’s headlines. The text’s approach is strongly influenced by the belief that the law has always been, and remains, a vital policy-making tool. As a topic for study and discussion, the nature and life of the law is more important today than ever before. The text highlights the challenges that face the law as it continues to adapt to the needs of a complex and rapidly changing society and features a balanced text/casebook approach that provides a lively introduction to criminal law. Effective in-text learning tools give students the resources they need to master the material presented in the text.


To give your students the most accurate picture of criminal law today, the material on law and crime is updated throughout the Sixth Edition. New cases and stories drawn from recent real-life events are included to draw readers into the material and help them contextualize how theory translates into practice.
