Written in the student-friendly style that characterizes Chemerinsky's Constitutional Law casebook, Criminal Procedure features cases, minor cases, and author-written essays while omitting both notes in the form of rhetorical questions and excerpts from law review articles. The chronological organization moves through the criminal justice process, from investigation to habeas corpus. Dynamic text guides students through understanding the law with tightly-edited cases, samples of legal pleadings arguing the issues, and perspectives from prosecutors, defense, counsel, judges, police, and victims alike. Each chapter has a consistent, systematic approach, beginning with an introduction laying out the nature of the issue, followed by a discussion on the history and development of the law. Then, examples of recent and seminal cases reveal how key criminal procedure issues have been raised, and an analytic approach toward resolving each issue shows what worked and why. The Second Edition has been thoroughly updated and provides analysis of the impact of important recent decisions, such as Arizona v. Gant, Herring v. U.S., Berghuis v. Thompkins, Maryland v. Shatzer, Montejo v. Louisiana, Perry v. New Hampshire, Frye v. Missouri, Lafler v. Cooper, and Williams v. Illinois. In addition, the Second Edition examines new decisions affecting right to counsel, right to fair trial, and habeas corpus law. New supplemental handouts and practice materials are available on the companion website.

Criminal Procedure: Investigation and Right to Counsel is for courses on criminal procedure law that focus on the issues pertaining to the investigation of criminal activities. It is a spin-off of Comprehensive Criminal Procedure, by the same team of authors, which covers both the investigatory and adjudicatory aspects of criminal procedure law. The casebook focuses primarily on constitutional criminal procedure law, but also covers relevant statutes and court rules. The casebook is deliberately challenging it is designed for teachers who want to explore deeply not only the contemporary state of the law, but also its historical and theoretical foundations. The casebook incorporates a particular emphasis on empirical knowledge about the real-world impacts of law-in-action; the significance of race and class; the close relationship between criminal procedure law and substantive criminal law; the cold reality that hard choices sometimes must be made in a world of limited criminal justice resources; and, finally, the recognition that criminal procedure law always should strive to achieve both fairness to the accused and justice for society as a whole.

Verhandeln? Bitte mit Gefühl! Noch immer herrscht der weitverbreitete Irrglaube, Verhandlungen müssten möglichst rational geführt, Emotionen weitestgehend ausgeklammert werden. Roger Fisher (Mitautor des Bestsellers "Das Harvard-Konzept") und Daniel Shapiro (Autor von "Verhandeln. Die neue Erfolgsmethode aus Harvard") zeigen, dass diese Herangehensweise nicht nur impraktikabel, sondern auch wenig Erfolg versprechend ist. Denn der Mensch ist ein emotionales Wesen und egal ob Freude, Wut oder Angst: Gefühle sind fester Bestandteil unseres Denkens und Handelns, die auch in sachlichen Verhandlungen nicht abgeschaltet werden können. Fisher und Shapiro zeigen, dass sich Emotionen sogar positiv auf das Verhandlungsergebnis auswirken: Wer die Bedeutung und Anzeichen der wichtigsten emotionalen Grundbedürfnisse erkennt, kann sie gezielt aktivieren und ansprechen und dadurch den Verhandlungsverlauf positiv beeinflussen.

Die strafprozessuale Zufallsverwendung

Zufallsfunde und andere Zweckdivergenzen bei der Informationsverwendung im Strafverfahren

English summary: To what extent may information which has been obtained for other purposes or outside the criminal proceedings be used in criminal prosecution? Stefan Grawe deals with this question and the previous answers to it, tracing these back to their origins. In doing so, he studies the various phenomena related to changes in purpose when using information in criminal proceedings, in particular the occurrence and the applicability of so-called accidental discoveries. He explores the different ways of looking at this in court rulings and legal dogmatics, some of which he expands upon, others of which he rejects as no longer in keeping with the times. At the conclusion of his work, the author provides a solution to these problems and reveals several unexpected results of his investigation. German description: Im Strafverfahren werden haufig Informationen verwendet, die ursprunglich zu ganz anderen Zwecken erhoben wurden, sei es zur Verfolgung einer anderen Straftat oder sei es zur Verfolgung sicherheitsrechtlicher oder allgemeiner verwaltungsrechtlicher Zwecke. Stefan Grawe untersucht im vorliegenden Buch die Anderung derartiger Zwecke und die daran anschliessende strafprozessuale Informationsverwendung. Er analysiert die Fallgestaltungen der sogenannten Zufallsfunde bzw. der sogenannten Zufallserkenntnisse sowie deren strafverfahrensrechtliche Verwertung, aber auch die Verwendung anderer Informationen, soweit sie der Verwertung von Zufallsfunden entspricht.Mit den faktischen Moglichkeiten zur Informationsverwendung ist die rechtliche Notwendigkeit formaler Sicherungen gewachsen. Hingegen gehen die Dogmen, die sich zum Umgang mit Informationen im Strafprozess herausgebildet haben, auf strafverfahrensrechtliche Entwicklungen des 18. und 19. Jahrhunderts zuruck. Der Autor stellt diese Leitlinien auf den Prufstand und zeigt, dass sie ebenso wie andere Grundsatze des Beweisverwertungsrechts der Wirklichkeit des heutigen, unverkorperten Informationstransfers nicht gerecht werden. Er pladiert fur die strikte Anwendung der allgemeinen Zweckbindungsdogmatik im Strafprozessrecht und entwickelt ein den modernen Grundrechts- und Rechtsstaatserfordernissen angepasstes Konzept, damit die Zulassigkeit von Akten strafprozessualer Informationsverwendung sachgerecht beurteilt werden kann.

Die 3. Auflage berücksichtigt das zuletzt erschienene Schrifttum und vertieft einige Einzelprobleme.
