"A valuable and accessible resource for students studying criminal procedure. The case briefs provide an excellent, in-depth examination and analysis of significant Supreme Court cases in a brief and concise manner. Students find this approach less intimidating, and more engaging and user-friendly."
--Stephane Kirven, Sacred Heart University
"The strategy of providing case briefs rather than opinion text is good, as students tend to have trouble understanding opinions themselves. I also like very much that the authors explain the significance of the case; it is hard to get students to understand that these cases are not just empty rhetoric or ivory-tower battles of intellect--they matter to the day-to-day administration of criminal justice. The writing style is also good and I believe that it is as engaging as textbook writing can be."
--Jacinta M. Gau, University of Central Florida
