Robinson's Criminal Law Case Studies, 5th
This title makes complex criminal law issues more accessible to students by examining the facts of real-life case studies. The new edition continues the practice of adding additional cases, along with all accompanying material. Included in the text are details regarding the offender’s background, the nature of the offense, all relevant facts of the case, photographs of the people and locations of the offense, and the texts of both then-governing and current statutes. This approach encourages analysis about what the law is and should be, and the aftermath of each case encourages discussion about what actually happened to the defendant and why.
