Osler's Contemporary Criminal Law, 2d
eBook - Lifetime digital access to the eBook, with the ability to highlight and take notes.
The Second Edition of Contemporary Criminal Law presents a clean new approach to teaching criminal law to first year students. A consistent emphasis on the elements of crime centers the book on what matters most, and compelling exercises are rooted in the discretion of prosecutors and judges. Using only opinions from federal courts in the modern era, the book presents a coherence that is missing from texts rooted in a hodge-podge of time frames and jurisdictions. Narcotics, firearm crimes, and immigration all are addressed in complete chapters, reflecting the real-life world of criminal law as it now exists. This second edition includes 23 new cases and commentary aimed at sharpening this focus.
