This book combines substantive criminal law with exercises offering practical experience. Students are asked to draft indictments, jury instructions, motions, and to engage in plea bargaining. The basic elements of each crime are spelled out before difficult applications of those elements are presented. It takes a very modern approach to criminal law. The majority of the cases in the book were decided in the 21st Century.
