This book provides a comprehensive overview of modern and historical understandings of the pre-trial rights guaranteed by the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments.

Carefully edited majority, concurring, and dissenting opinions convey the development of criminal constitutional law, exposing recurring themes and ideas across cases and over the decades. The Supreme Court's classic and recent cases are organized around a politically agnostic conceptual approach, allowing students to grasp competing theories for understanding the key concepts underlying searches and seizures, interrogations, and the exclusionary rules. "Points for Discussion" following each case focus students on the points of contention among the justices, facilitating class preparation. The included online version links to historical materials and legal sources on Westlaw® and the Internet.

Almost 100 detailed problems for class discussion require students to apply Code and Regulation provisions to real-life fact patterns. The book also includes links to several instructional videos with practice questions providing students with another opportunity to reinforce their understanding of the material. Like other titles in the Interactive Casebook series, the accompanying electronic version gives students immediate access to the full text of cited cases, statutes, articles, and other materials in the Westlaw database. It also contains hundreds of links to relevant videos, photos, articles, audio clips, and other sources that help make the subject come alive for students.
