This looseleaf version of the Connected Casebook does not come with a binder. Criminal Procedure: Adjudication and Right to Counsel is for courses on criminal procedure law that focus on the issues pertaining to the adjudication of criminal cases. It is a spin-off of Comprehensive Criminal Procedure, by the same team of authors, which covers both the investigatory and adjudicatory aspects of criminal procedure law. The casebook focuses primarily on constitutional criminal procedure law, but also covers relevant statutes and court rules. It explores not only the contemporary state of the law, but also its historical and theoretical foundations. It incorporates a particular emphasis on empirical knowledge about the real-world impacts of law-in-action; the significance of race and class; the close relationship between criminal procedure law and substantive criminal law; the cold reality that hard choices sometimes must be made in a world of limited criminal justice resources; and, finally, the recognition that criminal procedure law always should strive to achieve both fairness to the accused and justice for society as a whole. New to the 2nd Edition: We have added a wonderful new co-author, Yale Professor Tracey Meares, whose special expertise in the law and policy of police investigations has enriched the casebook tremendously. The Introduction chapter has been updated with a number of new scholarly writings that provide an overview of important aspects of criminal procedure law. The Right to Counsel chapter incorporates the new wave of structural reform litigation over the often-crushing caseloads and frequently inadequate resources of public defender offices; the chapter has also been completely reorganized for clarity and ease of teaching. The Jury and the Criminal Trial chapter has been revised to include the latest developments concerning the Confrontation Clause and the continuing evolution of the Crawford doctrine. The Sentencing chapter has been updated to include the most recent of the Supreme Court's line of Apprendi/Blakely/Booker decisions.
