This five-volume treatise provides an analysis of United States Supreme Court case law on a variety of constitutional issues, with a concentration on those issues critical to criminal proceedings. Part I offers an overview of Supreme Court cases interpreting:

  •   the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Eighth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments;
  •   the remedies for constitutional infringements;
  •   the right to privacy;
  •   the constitutionality of federal penal legislation under the Commerce Clause;
  •   the constitutionally of state-directed mandates under the Necessary and Proper Clause; and
  •   extradition.

Citations to pertinent statutes, rules, and lower court decisions are included. Part II contains summaries and detailed legal analyses of every major criminal law-related case decided by the Supreme Court since its 1979-1980 Term, as well as important non-criminal cases addressing the issues discussed in Part I. Each chapter in Part II covers a different Term, with cases organized according to the relevant constitutional amendment or type of action. In the first release of each year, a new chapter is added to Part II covering the recently concluded Supreme Court Term. The second release of the year updates the analysis in Part I with the principles announced in the case law from the previous Term.
