Legal educators are beginning to recognize the need for their students to hit the ground running when they graduate. This book is designed to helps students to do just that. It consists of nine simulations, covering a wide array of issues arising under the Fourth Amendment, the Fifth Amendment, and Sixth Amendment taught in the basic Criminal Procedure course and gives students the opportunity to learn essential lawyering skills. For example, it puts students in the role of counselor, trial and oral advocate, and legal writer. Some of the chapters include role summaries and require students to present testimony before the trial court hearing the defendant's motion to suppress evidence. Others consist of transcripts of hearings and require students to present arguments to the court. Why a second edition? The Supreme Court has changed the law in some key areas, including whether an officer can search a cell phone as part of a search incident to lawful arrest. One new simulation involves an issue dividing lower courts: whether digital cameras are like cell phones. Importantly, two new simulations allow a full discussion of racial profiling in policing practices.

This title is the work of nationally renowned experts on the subject of constitutional criminal procedure. It is ideally suited for a survey course designed to explore and critically examine how the U.S. Supreme Court has dealt with a wide range of highly controversial issues that arise at various stages of the criminal process. Considerable effort has been made to set forth the views of all members of the Court in landmark and important recent cases. The modest size of this volume has been attained not by collecting snippets of many opinions, but by the judicious selection of leading cases. An outstanding feature is the illuminating introductory commentary that appears throughout the book and place the selected cases in general historical and doctrinal perspective.
This casebook on investigative criminal procedure takes a fresh and uniquely contemporary doctrinal approach. It begins with enough history to enable students to follow the historical arguments that pervade the Supreme Court's great landmarks. Those landmarks receive extensive coverage. Scholarly lower-court opinions, however, often are used as force-multipliers, to synthesize and apply the ever-growing Supreme Court case law. Many of these opinions arose from civil actions, illustrating Section 1983 litigation even before the extensive chapter on constitutional remedies. That chapter deals with the exclusionary rule, but also with 1983 and Bivens suits. Institutional reform injunctions--the most dramatic development in the field in decades-receive extensive treatment. Brief but detailed Notes introduce pertinent academic literature, including empirical findings on stop-and-frisk and institutional reform injunctions, systemic feedback loops, the philosophical basis of the privilege against self-incrimination, and the role of race-past and present--in the law of criminal procedure. Prior books emphasize the Supreme Court's decisions applying the constitutional exclusionary rules. This understandable focus comes at a price. Too little attention is paid to the origins of our constitutional rights or to remedies for institutional violence as distinct from invasions of privacy. The prevailing focus on the e-rule risks devoting the whole course to only part (admittedly a very important part) of the law.

Whitebread & Slobogin's Criminal Procedure: An Analysis of Cases and Concepts (7th ed. 2020) is a sophisticated, readable treatment of virtually all the Supreme Court's criminal procedure decisions, as well as of selected federal and state statutes and rules and lower court decisions. It not only describes the relevant law and provides helpful summaries of it at the end of each chapter, but traces the law's historical development, provides the facts of the most important cases so students can understand the context of the decision, and organizes each chapter in a flow-chart fashion that provides students with a roadmap for analyzing the material. Each chapter ends with an up-to-date bibliography.
This supplement brings the principal text current with recent developments in the law.
