With its concise writing style, streamlined chapter format, abundance of checklists and forms, multitude of references to leading and related cases, cross references to relevant analytical content, and extensive and authoritative guidance, you'll find more of everything that makes a practice guide valuable and easy for you to use.

Each Practice Guide chapter combines authoritative legal analysis with an expert author's practical insights that have been distilled from years of litigation practice. Georgia Criminal Law includes hundreds of Practice Tips with easy-to-recognize icons that transition smoothly from legal analysis to practical application of a point of law.

   Chapter parts begin with a detailed practice checklist (more than 60 checklists are included) defining the essentials of a major task, e.g., “Raising Error on Appeal ” and “Recognizing, Objecting and Presenting Hearsay. ” Checklists capture the essential steps (what, when, how) of each task with cross-references to relevant authority, forms, and discussion of the topic within the chapter itself.

Highlights:

•  Expert analysis and practice tips through each phase of a criminal proceeding: Comprehensive analysis of criminal law and procedure in Georgia. Reduces research time and offers a starting point to prosecutors and defense counsel for researching their criminal cases.
•  Over 60 checklists: Facilitates personalizing and editing of jury instructions and saves practitioner time by providing the text of the jury instructions in electronic format.
