This book brings to life the world of criminal attorneys, both prosecution and defense, as they work within the framework of this significant body of doctrine. This text follows a case from investigation and evidence gathering to arrest and, ultimately, the commencement of a conspiracy trial.
Along this journey, the students must engage in strategic planning and problem-solving, as well as resolve a series of ethical dilemmas as they prepare for a range of hands-on performances. They will conduct an interview with a police officer, argue to trial and appellate courts about the legality of automobile searches and photo identifications, put on direct-examinations and conduct cross-examinations at a hearing to suppress evidence obtained in a Terry stop or in a police interrogation, draft search warrants, etc.
Throughout, they will work with a realistic casefile that includes transcripts of a suppression hearing and a police interrogation, an Information, numerous police reports, evidence, lab reports, a search warrant and supporting affidavit, evidence logs and other relevant materials.
