Talk about Criminal Law: Cases and Materials

This is by far the worst text book I have seen in law school. Dressler, which other sections were assigned is much better. This book is a cluster of poorly edited notes and excerpts. Very detailed, yes. But at the cost of anything resembling clarity. The order of the cases is questionable and the footnotes are horrible and inconsistent. They make sections of the font smaller than others for pages at a time . . . and for the price, I'd at least expect it to be printed on halfway decent paper.
Oh, law school
This is a great casebook. The cases are all relevant and well edited (very short to my pleasure!). It also has the MPC in the back, which is very convenient.
Great book!
This textbook is very clearly written and, contrary to a lot of others book, it is not just a series of cases, on efollowing the others. It provides a very good basis for a criminal law class.
This was my casebook for 1st year Criminal Law. It is a good casebook, and does a good job of summarizing the law in addition to a decent job of editing the cases. I would strongly recommend purchasing Understanding Criminal Law by Dressler in addition to this book.
Not 5 stars because by itself is a bit overwhelming especially since only 1 semester. however, out of all of my textbooks this is the only one that actually explained everything and went in depth with policy.
Great Book haven't got to that class yet but I reviewed it and it is great!!!!
