Written in the student-friendly style that characterizes Chemerinsky's Constitutional Law casebook, Criminal Procedure: Adjudication features cases, minor cases, and author-written essays while omitting both notes in the form of rhetorical questions and excerpts from law review articles. The chronological organization moves through the criminal justice process, from investigation to habeas corpus. Dynamic text guides students through understanding the law with tightly edited cases, samples of legal pleadings arguing the issues, and perspectives from prosecutors, defense, counsel, judges, police, and victims alike. Each chapter has a consistent, systematic approach, beginning with an introduction laying out the nature of the issue, followed by a discussion on the history and development of the law. Then, examples of recent and seminal cases reveal how key criminal procedure issues have been raised, and an analytic approach toward resolving each issue shows what worked and why. The Second Edition has been thoroughly updated and provides analysis of the impact of important recent decisions, such as Arizona v. Gant, Herring v. U.S., Berghuis v. Thompkins, Maryland v. Shatzer, Montejo v. Louisiana, and Perry v. New Hampshire. In addition, the Second Edition examines new decisions affecting right to counsel.
