Criminal Practice and Procedure, by Christine M. Wiseman and Michael Tobin, provides attorneys and lay users with current, in depth information and commentary regarding Wisconsin criminal practice in an easy to read and accessible format. This single volume guides the reader through the myriad steps of criminal procedure, and thoroughly engages the practice of criminal law - from the commencement of prosecution (including arrest), motion practice (pretrial and discovery), and defense (including competency hearings and the insanity defense).
This book includes detailed analysis and commentary on a wide range of subjects including search and seizure, preliminary hearings, confessions, speedy trial, and more. Yearly supplemental materials are added to the back of the volume to address new issues, and update existing issues, as they develop. This book is shelved in our libraries as volume 9 of the Wisconsin Practice Series.
Pair this with the Criminal Defense Manual from the Wisconsin State Bar for a head start on your next case.
