Criminal Litigation & Legal Issues in Criminal Procedure
Select a format
Criminal Litigation & Legal Issues in Criminal Procedure is designed to incorporate the substantive law of criminal procedure into a trial advocacy course.
The traditional trial advocacy course is concerned almost exclusively with "skills training" (e.g., learning techniques for cross-examining a witness), but does not incorporate much, if any, substantive law. Conversely, a traditional substantive course on criminal law or criminal procedure focuses exclusively on legal principles and doctrine, but does not involve training students in courtroom advocacy skills concerning substantive law.
In Criminal Litigation & Legal Issues in Criminal Procedure, author Brent Newton merges elements from these two types of courses into one and seeks to bridge the gap between them.
