The third edition of Kerr's popular computer crimes text includes many updates since the second edition in 2009. New cases address topics such as the computer hacking laws, economic espionage online, Internet threats, criminal copyright prosecutions, searching cell phones incident to arrest, applying the Fourth Amendment to the Internet, and the validity of computer warrants. Two chapters have been restructured to make it easier for students to understand the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and the emerging rules for computer searches. The book covers every aspect of crime in the digital age, and it is presented in an engaging and accessible style. Topics range from computer fraud laws and international computer crimes to Internet surveillance laws and the Fourth Amendment. It is part traditional casebook, part treatise. It both straightforwardly explains the law and presents many exciting and new questions of law that courts are only now beginning to consider. The book is ideally suited either for a 3-credit course or a 2-credit seminar. It will appeal both to criminal law professors and those interested in cyberlaw or law and technology. No advanced knowledge of computers and the Internet is required or assumed. Computer crime law has become an increasingly important area of criminal practice, and this book provides the ideal introduction to the field. Many U.S. Attorney's Offices have dedicated computer crime units, as have many state Attorney General offices. Any student with a background in this emerging area of law will have a leg up on the competition. Students will also find the book easy and fun to read, while professors will appreciate the accessible introduction to an important new field with many open questions for legal scholars. The materials are authored by Orin Kerr, the Fred C. Stevenson Research Professor at George Washington University Law School and a leading authority on the law of computer crime.

Contemporary Criminal Law presents a clean new approach to teaching criminal law to first year students. A consistent emphasis on the elements of crime centers the book on what matters most, and compelling exercises are rooted in the discretion of prosecutors and judges. Using only opinions from federal courts in the modern era, the book presents a coherence that is missing from texts rooted in a hodge-podge of time frames and jurisdictions. Narcotics, firearm crimes, and immigration all are addressed in complete chapters, reflecting the real-life world of criminal law as it now exists.

This text, the only criminal law casebook authored by two progressive female law professors of color, provides the reader with both critical race and critical feminist theory perspectives on criminal law while following a traditional format. All of the usual subject areas are covered, but the book is unique in highlighting the cultural context of substantive criminal law. The book seamlessly integrates issues of race, gender, class, and sexual orientation so the teacher who wishes to address such issues does not have to assign supplemental reading assignments in order to do so. The book is also very student-friendly, providing a brief doctrinal overview of the subject matter at the beginning of each chapter. The book does away with the tradition of long lists of notes and questions following the cases, a trademark feature of many older casebooks, putting this material in the Teachers Manual for the teacher to use at his or her discretion. The forthcoming third edition is fresh and innovative, referencing several ripped from the headlines controversies, including the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman and Florida's stand your ground law, the arrest of African American Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. for disorderly conduct, the shooting of Larry King, a gender nonconforming teenager, by classmate Brandon McInerney and the gay panic defense, and the repeal of North Carolina's Racial Justice Act.

This book creates an advanced course in substantive criminal law organized around considering whether vice behaviors--gambling, narcotics, commercial and deviate sexual practices, pornography, drinking--are the proper subjects of criminal prohibition, and, if so, with what means of enforcement and punishment. Vice behaviors have been the subject of radical changes over the past generation, making them an ideal laboratory for the study of the law reform process. The materials used include statistical data, philosophical, historical and legal scholarship as well as policy analysis. The second edition adds new units covering the decriminalization of marijuana in two states, the federal crusade against child pornography, and the constitutional recognition of same sex marriage. A new section of the teacher's manual describes teaching strategies for both law school and criminal justice courses.

This popular casebook, through the selection of classic and modern cases, provides an excellent tool for teaching students the common law foundations of the criminal law and modern statutory reform, including the Model Penal Code. Along the way, the casebook considers modern controversies (e.g., "shaming" punishment, rape law, self-defense by battered women, euthanasia, the role of culture in determining culpability), and creatively uses literature (e.g., examining insanity through Edgar Allen Poe's The-Tell Tale Heart) and even "brain teasers" to confront (as the Preface states) "the Big Questions . . . that philosophers, theologians, scientists, and poets, as well as lawyers, have grappled with for centuries." Professor Stephen Garvey (Cornell) joins the casebook beginning with this new edition. The Sixth Edition, as in the past, includes some new cases, as well as updates in the notes that bring current issues of criminal law to the fore.

The Sixth Edition is an entire reworking of this classic casebook. Beyond its traditional role in teaching a broad-gauge federal criminal law course, the book is well suited for use in white collar crime courses or seminars. For example, the fraud materials focus on business practices uncovered in the current economic meltdown. New chapters and new sections include Corporate Criminal Liability (new chapter 9), the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (chapter 5, section E), Plea Bargaining after Lafler and Frye (chapter 17 Part B), corporate plea, cooperation, and deferred-prosecution agreements (chapter 17, Section C), and general defenses to federal criminal liability (chapter 8, Section E). All chapters have been substantially revamped, reflecting recent Supreme Court rulings, new case law and statutory changes in the areas of mail fraud, obstruction, money laundering, terrorism, and weapons offense, and death penalty enhancements for Controlled Substance Act violations.

Traditionally relegated because of political pressure and public expectations, courts in Latin America are increasingly asserting a stronger role in public and political discussions. This casebook takes account of this phenomenon, by offering a rigorous and up-to-date discussion of constitutional adjudication in Latin America in recent decades. Bringing to the forefront the development of constitutional law by Latin American courts in various subject matters, the volume aims to highlight a host of creative arguments and solutions that judges in the region have offered. The authors review and discuss innovative case law in light of the countries’ social, political and legal context. Each chapter is devoted to a discussion of a particular area of judicial review, from freedom of expression to social and economic rights, from the internalization of human rights law to judicial checks on the economy, from gender and reproductive rights to transitional justice. The book thus provides a very useful tool to scholars, students and litigants alike.

The Eleventh Edition of this popular casebook provides a framework for studying both the essential and the cutting-edge issues of civil procedure while incorporating problems that test doctrinal understanding, foster case reading skills, and encourage a sense of litigation strategy. New Supreme Court cases have been integrated that impact personal jurisdiction (McIntyre, Goodyear), subject-matter jurisdiction (Grable, Gunn), pleading (Twombly, Iqbal), joinder (Pimentel), class actions (Dukes), and other important topics, including statutory changes such as the Jurisdiction Clarification Act. The casebook covers all of the major topics that a professor might wish to teach in a first-year course, and can easily be adapted for courses of one- or two-semesters, of different credit hours, and with varied practical or theoretical emphases. A supplement includes all updated Federal Rules, the pleadings in Twombly and Iqbal, a model case file, state materials, and other important teaching tools.
