Summary

By far the best-selling text in this market, AMERICA'S COURTS focuses on the dynamics of the court by introducing the concept of the ''courtroom work group'' and the relationship between the three main-actors judge, prosecutor, and defense attorney-thus illustrating the law in action, not just dry theory and facts. Neubauer also uses myriad pedagogical devices which bring the court process to life for students. This text has become a leader because of its comprehensiveness, its focus on dynamics of the process, and its pedagogical features. This new edition is a radical revision, with many new topics, features, and supplements.

  • NEW! Book endpapers feature Supreme Court and other court-related time lines.
  • NEW! Case index appears at the end of the text for easy reference.
