More than 68 million people have downloaded the hit podcast Serial and 19.3 million viewers have watched Netflix’s documentary series, Making a Murderer. Both examples tell the true stories of criminal defendants’ experiences with our justice system through footage or audio recordings of the actual trial—essentially opening the courtroom doors to the public at large. By relying heavily on practical materials to guide students through the substantive law, Investigative Criminal Procedure: Inside This Century’s Most (In)Famous Cases does the same for law students. Each chapter focuses on specific “real-world” defendants such as James Holmes, OJ Simpson, and Brendan Dassey—among many others. Core cases are presented in a logical and easy-to-follow order. The book also includes access to an online casefile repository where students can find actual litigation documents from each case—such as complaints, search warrants, transcripts, and interrogation videos.

This title utilizes the CasebookPlus™ platform, providing your students digital access to faculty-authored self-assessments that allow them to test their understanding of core concepts as they are learning them in class, a casefile repository with litigation documents, including interrogation videos, and more.
