Criminal procedure Chemerinsky best supplement

Postby lawstudent328 » Mon Dec 23, 2013 5:29 pm

I am enrolled in Criminal Procedure this coming semester using the Chemerinsky Criminal Procedure: Investigation textbook. I was wondering what the best supplement would be for this class. I have see the Dressler book to be the best but just wondering if anyone knew of anything directly keyed to the Chemerinsky textbook. Thanks.

Also if Dressler is the best do I really need the 2013 6th edition or is the 2010 5th edition just as good?

I used this book. It's a great book because it cuts the cases down to like two pages each, with the exception of the major cases like Miranda, and it's easy to read. Almost no notes or anything like that.

I used Crunchtime and Cali Lessons. Used Dressler to brush up on a few things like the Exclusionary Rule. Crunchtime is great though. It has flow charts and explains things very well.

You must get the latest edition of Understanding Criminal Procedure. A LOT of very important stuff has happened in criminal procedure since 2010.
