Additional Book Details

Mastering Criminal Procedure, Volume 2: The Adjudicatory Stage focuses on the process of a criminal case from the filing of charges against a defendant through the pre-trial and trial stages of the prosecution, and then post-conviction proceedings. The Second Edition provides updated treatment of the latest Supreme Court decisions along with a range of statutes and rules that govern the process by which a criminal charge is adjudicated.

A number of constitutional protections apply in a prosecution, including the right to a jury trial, confrontation of witnesses, the prohibition on excessive bail, and protection from double jeopardy. Many procedural rules are equally important to the judicial process, such as discovery rights, jurisdiction and venue, and post-conviction proceedings, including habeas corpus. This broad range of topics is explained clearly and succinctly to allow students to master the key concepts and rules related to the adjudication of a criminal prosecution.

The authors have experience as prosecutors and defense counsel, and have written extensively in the fields of criminal law, criminal procedure, and evidence.
