Williams and Berry's Federal Criminal Practice
Federal Criminal Practice combines substantive Federal Criminal Law, Federal Criminal Procedure, and the Federal Rules of Evidence, with a mock case. Students apply what they learn in a manner that expands their understanding. Course materials consist of a textbook and mock case materials. The mock case involves an arson committed to collect insurance proceeds. Classes involve lectures, discussion, and written and oral exercises. Students write a search warrant application, an indictment, and a substantive exhibit/witness list. Students examine witnesses before the grand jury, conduct voir dire, present opening statements and closing arguments, and conduct direct and cross examination.
