Additional Book Details

This volume is a companion to Lawlemmas: In Search of Principled Choices in Law, Justice, and Life, and lays bare the law at the foundation of the plot lines and major issues explored therein. To expose these richly nuanced dimensions of law, this book relies on heavily edited judicial decisions and accompanying materials that parallel the essays in the companion volume. The issues addressed in the volume are timely and important, encompassing such matters as the use of force by police against citizens, capital punishment, wrongful convictions, jury nullification, the insanity defense, and a host of additional topics involving substantive criminal law, criminal procedure, and constitutional law. This volume can be used in combination with the companion book, or it can serve as a stand-alone work to explore issues relating to criminal justice, constitutional law, and corresponding legal values and principles.
