In this new eighth edition, Cases and Problems in Criminal Law provides a problem-based textbook to help students develop the analytical skills demanded by the legal profession. Each chapter presents a client-based problem for students to review before they begin reading the cluster of selected cases and statutes that they will use to address the client's legal issues. Students will use the materials as the lawyer must—by analyzing, distinguishing, reconciling, and interrelating the authorities.

This popular textbook, with a new co-author, Elizabeth Boals, an expert in trial practice, evidence, and criminal law, will help professors recreate the role of the lawyer for students as they strive to develop their professional identity. The textbook sets out a simple, standard formula for rule-based reasoning for students to apply to any written answers. The teacher's manual includes an outline for each problem, sample answers, and suggestions for helping students develop the analytical and organizational skills necessary to produce written and oral legal analysis.
