Criminal Pretrial Advocacy

Criminal Pretrial Advocacy fills a critical gap in the skills training for law students by providing a complete course addressing the pretrial phase of a criminal prosecution along with plea negotiation and sentencing. It contains materials to follow a case through all the important steps in a criminal prosecution from the decision to file charges to challenges to the investigative tactics and evidence to plea bargaining. The casebook covers the pretrial process in a criminal case by incorporating both a discussion of the rules and procedures in each phase along with the basic legal doctrines related to criminal prosecutions. This gives students the substantive foundation to proceed through the course by providing a foundation for understanding how the process unfolds. It is designed to give students the opportunity to engage in both legal writing exercises and court appearances.
