Designed for Efficient Research

The smartly organized Texas Criminal Practice Guide is the reference attorneys turn to for analysis of criminal law in Texas. First published in 1979, the guide's six volumes are arranged by section to correspond with the progression of the Texas criminal justice system, making their detailed information easy to access, whether you're a new attorney or an experienced practitioner. Each volume contains a number of chapters divided into four parts:

•  Legal Background - procedural and substantive law treating the constitutional, statutory, and case law considerations in each area.
•  Practice Guide - checklists and procedural steps outlined in chronological order.
•  Forms - for applying the law and procedure.
•  Research Guide - to direct you toward other sources of useful information.

Analysis, forms, and practice guidance are all in the same set, so you won't waste time looking through multiple publications to find the information you need. There's simply no more effective way to research Texas criminal law.

Updates When You Need Them

Texas Criminal Practice Guide is updated three times annually with page revisions containing new case law and chapters. Since all updates are incorporated into the set, you don't have to keep track of any pocket parts. Texas Criminal Practice Guide also provides a legislative update every other year. The guide is available in print, CD-ROM, or online; pick the media that best suit your practice.
