9780323340489: Constitutional Law for Criminal Justice

Criminal justice professionals often do not receive the training they need to recognize the constitutional principles that apply to their daily work. Constitutional Law for Criminal Justice offers a way to solve this problem by providing a comprehensive, well-organized, and up-to-date analysis of constitutional issues that affect criminal justice professionals. Chapter 1 summarizes the organization and content of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Fourteenth Amendment. The next eight chapters cover the constitutional principles that regulate investigatory detentions, traffic stops, arrests, use of force, search and seizure, technologically assisted surveillance, the Wiretap Act, interrogations and confessions, self-incrimination, witness identification procedures, the right to counsel, procedural safeguards during criminal trials, First Amendment issues relevant to law enforcement, capital punishment, and much more. The final chapter covers the constitutional rights of criminal justice professionals in the workplace, their protection under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, and their accountability under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 for violating the constitutional rights of others. Part II contains abstracts of key judicial decisions exemplifying how the doctrines covered in earlier chapters are being applied by the courts. The combination of text and cases creates flexibility in structuring class time.

Constitutional Law for Criminal Justice makes complex concepts accessible to students in all levels of criminal justice education. The chapters begin with an outline and end with a summary. Key Terms and Concepts are defined in the Glossary. Tables, figures, and charts are used to synthesize and simplify information. The result is an incomparably clear, student-friendly textbook that has remained a leader in criminal justice education for more than 45 years.

About the Author:

Jacqueline Kanovitz is an Emeritus Professor of the Brandeis School of Law where she taught for thirty years and served as Associate Dean for Student Affairs. She also taught at other law schools. She holds a J.D. (summa cum laude) from the University of Louisville School of Law. She is the recipient of numerous awards for teaching and writing excellence and has been a co-author of this textbook since the first edition in 1968.

Review:

It appears that Dr. Kanovitz has outdone herself again. As a professor of constitutional law, and former user of her previous editions, the 14th Edition of Constitutional Law for Criminal Justice does not disappoint. As in her previous editions, this volume appears current and tailor made for the undergraduate student; particularly in the area of criminal justice; and specifically in the application of procedural criminal law. Of immense value to new students reviewing court cases for the first time is the inclusion of a case citation guide and sample case citations. Highly recommended.

-Frank W. Andritzky, Political Science, Concordia University

Kanovitz’s Constitutional Law for Criminal Justice text is an excellent companion to teaching traditional or online courses. Kanovitz walks the students through the complexities of Constitutional Law with relevant case law and modern applications. The two-part format with corresponding full cases included within the text is an asset to instructors and students. Well written.

-Christopher J. Hall, Criminal Justice, Central Carolina Technical College

I have used Jacqueline Kanovitz’s very fine textbook, Constitutional Law for Criminal Justice, for several years as the required text for my constitution law and criminal justice classes at Troy University. The book is among the best organized and useful that I have found during my 12 years teaching American constitutional law and criminal procedure. The book presents the subject in a clear and understandable way and certainly enhances and supplements my course lectures. In fact, I have actually used the book’s table of contents as a part of the course outline for a several courses. I look forward to making use of the 14th edition.

-Ben A. Fuller, Circuit Judge, 19th Judicial Circuit of AL, Law, Troy University and Faulkner University

Constitutional Law for Criminal Justice is written with the student in mind. Whether delivering class for an entry-level criminal justice student or a veteran law student, this text breaks down the many complex issues in constitutional law and makes them more understandable from a legal standpoint. Utilizing examples from case law and applicable situations, the text allows students to understand these concepts with little explanation. I highly recommend this textbook for any level course on constitutional law.

-Colin McCaughey, Administration of Justice, Irvine Valley College
