With a new approach to understanding criminal procedure, Fundamentals of Criminal Procedure by Daniel Hall rethinks the traditional format by providing students with a thorough understanding of the constitutional and procedural dimensions of a criminal case from investigation through sentencing. Through real-life cases, contemporary examples, and questions and problems in topical sections, students are able to relate to the content and apply what they learn. With a focus on current challenges facing the criminal justice system, including police accountability and governmental power during national emergencies, this timely book is a valuable asset to any course seeking to give students a better-than-formative understanding of criminal procedure.
