Review:

"I use Judicial Process in America because it keeps up not only with real world events in judicial politics and process but also with the scholarly literature on the subject, which is critical. It is accessible to undergraduate students without talking down to them." -- Mark S. Hurwitz "The students love the text-it is affordable yet covers the material in a logical and understandable way. I love the text too-I have used every edition since the Fifth Edition. Of all the texts I choose year in and year out, this text is a go-to choice for me. It is well positioned to teach the concepts essential to the judicial process and philosophy course." -- Kenneth Frank "I am very fond of this text. I have used the various editions for over a decade. It is straightforward and full of good information. The chapters are thorough and present a realistic view of the courts without sensationalizing rare, anomalous events that distract from the true nature of American courts." -- Matthew S. Crow
