"Combining first-hand knowledge of the criminal procedure system with constitutional law scholarship, Laurie L. Levenson and Erwin Chemerinsky offer a student-friendly casebook that focuses on the investigation phase of criminal procedure. They offer straightforward essays by authors that illuminate principal and minor cases; a first-chapter overview of criminal procedure that looks at the roles of the participants, the progression of a case through the system, key procedural rules and governing principles, the Incorporation Doctrine, and the test for determining when new procedural rules should be applied retroactively; a consistent and systematic chapter structure; chronologically organized chapter topics; samples of legal pleadings; a panoramic perspective on practice; and the latest Supreme Court cases."--Jacket.
