Criminal Law: Cases, Statutes, and Lawyering Strategies is one of the most compact casebooks in the market, yet it covers all of the traditional criminal law subjects and also contains several special features: explanations and introductions to complex material, a problem approach, an emphasis on reading statutes, current issues such as terrorism, case files, sound coverage of some important areas neglected by other books, and a focus on the realities of the criminal law. The comprehensive Teacher's Manual, available only to professors, briefs every case and provides thorough guidance about handling every problem, question, and exercise.

Professors and adjunct professors may request complimentary examination copies of LexisNexis law school publications to consider for class adoption or recommendation. Please identify the book(s) you wish to receive, provide your institutional contact information, and submit your request here."

This book also is available in a heavily discounted, three-hole punched, alternative loose-leaf version printed on 8 � x 11 inch paper with wider margins and with the same pagination as the hardbound book.
