  • Description: This title contains well-prepared briefs for each major case in LaFave's casebook on criminal law. High court briefs are written to present the essential facts, issue, decision and rationale for each case in a clear, concise manner. While prepared briefs can never substitute for the insight gained by actually reading a case, these briefs will help you identify, understand, and absorb the core "take away" knowledge from each case. Moreover, these briefs are followed by a useful legal analysis, which provides extra tips and contextual background about each case, connecting the case to the broader concepts being developed throughout the casebook. This book also supplies case vocabulary, which defines new or unusual legal words, and a memory graphic for each brief that is an entertaining visual representation of the relevant facts or law of the case.
