This text provides a comprehensive legal framework of the rules of evidence, highlights key law enforcement issues in the field, and uses “headline cases” to illustrate major points and generate student interest.
Criminal evidence is most often approached from one of two perspectives: legal or law enforcement. This text melds the two perspectives with the aim of providing the most effective and interesting way to present the subject matter. This text presents potentially complicated concepts in a clear, palatable manner.
A key aspect of this text is that it uses current, newsworthy examples; an example is the Louise Woodward case (the murdering Au Pair) discussed in Chapter 2. The text comes with some useful supplements that include PowerPoints, a CD of the most important cases, and a list of videos and websites that are coordinated by chapter and topic. These resources allow an instructor to take an engaging, multi-media approach to the material.
