Great book, just as described in the title and picture.

I am a 1L so my experience with case books is limited but this is the best case book that I have used yet. I really echo the sentiment that this book is really great for outlining as the notes contain a lot of policy points on each issue. I don't know how other law schools teach crim law but I find that this book's reflection on international criminal law is really interesting and makes for a nice break from the Model Penal Code. The book also dealt with sensitive topics like rape and assisted suicide gracefully. I'm not sure if I would recommend this book for light reading (this was obviously a required book for my crim law class) but if you were assigned this case book, you lucked out. Also, every case book that I order from amazon comes promptly but be realistic about your needs. Most law school classes request that you do reading for the first day so order with enough time to accomplish those assignments.

This case book is simply invaluable. It is loaded with lots of interesting cases. EAch case is broken down and carefully, yet thoroughly analyzed. This is a great tool for helping the reader understand the full extent of proceedings as well as court rulings. The information in each case is dissected and terms are defined so that each step of each proceeding is completely understood. This is a great book for those who are contemplating a career in the field, as well as those who have years of experience.

If you could call a casebook awesome I would use those words here. This book is great for outlining and it leads you through Criminal Law step by step. You'll be amazed at your deep understanding of Criminal Law when you finish with this casebook.

I bought this book on a whim. For a long time I had been interested in law and wanted to see what studying it was all about. I don't think I could have picked a better place to start. From the word go this book delivered interesting cases with in-depth analysis at the end of each one. The analysis was especially helpful in picking apart the important points of law that the case represented. Now when I watch Law and Order and The Practice, I can tell my girlfriend about what is going on (in the legal parts) and sound like a total know-it-all, which is totally awesome.

...now in book format. This one has EVERYTHING: murder, robberies, conspiracy, entrapment, old-timey English courts with judges in wigs, sea captains, nautical murder, russian roulette, forbidden love, vigilantism, drugs, drug busts, and, best of all, the Model Penal Code.

I am very interested in studying Law. I even want to enter a law school. But I can’t, since I am fulltime teaching math and already got my PhD. So I decided to study by myself. I found this book from the book list for law students at UCLA School of Law. I like this book very much. This book is about criminal law and its processes as the title indicated and more importantly, it has many cases and materials. Thus, this book has the fundamental legal knowledge.

I heard some student said that studying law is boring. But I feel this book is not boring at all, it is fascinating. It not only has the knowledge law students need to learn but also has interesting lead to guide students to learn.

This book has ten chapters. Chapter 1 is Institutions and Processes. Chapter 2 is The Justification and Punishment. Chapter 3 is Defining Criminal Conduct –The Elements of Just Punishment. Chapter 4 is Rape. Chapter 5 is Homicide. Chapter 6 is The Significance of Resulting Harm. Chapter 7 is Group Criminality. Chapter 8 is Exculpation. Chapter 9 is Theft Offenses. Chapter 10 is Discretion.

Book has spine intact and all pages but is drawn on on the edges and there is more then just occasional highlighting along with some pen marks and comments.

I bought this only because I needed it for a class. It's comprehensive and informative, but don't buy it at regular price.
