Federal Criminal Trials is the definitive volume on federal criminal procedure, rules of evidence, and constitutional protections.

Get in-depth coverage of the criminal trial process as it relates to:

•  Constitutional protections
•  Federal criminal procedure
•  Rules of evidence
•  Latest citations from all circuits
•  Complex pre- and post-trial issues

Federal prosecutors in the Department of Justice have used this handbook as the authoritative courtroom reference since 1946.

Going forward, Federal Criminal Trials will be published annually in a softbound format. Beginning with the 2016 edition, a separate cumulative supplement will no longer be published. To improve ease of use, annual revisions and updates will now be integrated into the main text.
