9780735570122: Criminal Law & Procedure for the Paralegal

Criminal Law and Procedure for the Paralegal uses actual paralegal assignments from practice to teach students what to do when they work for a defense attorney, prosecutor, or law enforcement agency. With coverage of local, state, and federal-level criminal cases, paralegal students learn about the different types of cases that are handled by lawyers and by regulatory agencies--and their role as paralegals in the investigation and prosecution of those crimes. Practical and engaging, Criminal Law and Procedure for the Paralegal features:

  • broad and lucid coverage of basic concepts
  • a consistent focus on the role of the paralegal in an attorney's office and in law enforcement agencies
  • a logical four-part organization

    1. Introduction to the Criminal Justice System

    2. Criminal Law vs. Criminal Procedure

    4. Criminal Procedure

  • realistic assignments that ask students to draft indictments, memos, grand jury subpoenas, and jury instructions based on hypothetical memos, investigative reports, and interviews
  • clear explanations of the basic elements of criminal offenses and how they are used to define criminal offenses--provides students with a system they can use to analyze and understand the legal nature of any criminal offense
  • a student-friendly "stage approach" to understanding procedural rights --each Criminal Procedure chapter focuses on one stage of the process and the applicable rights for that stage
  • integrated coverage of white collar crime and other kinds of crime and the different types of criminal investigations, from police investigations to administrative and grand jury investigations--focusing on the role of the paralegal in each
  • a broad range of well-edited cases
