The title of this Nutshell, which is also the usual title of the corresponding law school course, may be misleading. "Advanced Criminal Procedure" would seem to suggest an "Advanced" treatment of issues addressed in "Criminal Procedure." This book is not, however, a further inquiry into the constitutional constraints on police investigation--the subject of Criminal Procedure--but an examination of the procedural aspects of a criminal case once the investigation is complete. The book begins with a discussion of the legal doctrines governing the decision to file formal charges, and ends with the procedures for appeal and collateral attack of the conviction. The Nutshell (and the course) might more accurately be titled "Procedural Aspects of the Prosecution and Adjudication of a Criminal Case," or, less elegantly, "Criminal Procedures from Bail to Jail."
