SUMMARY

This concise, invaluable volume is comprehensive in its treatment of corrections law, covering all of the major cases in the area. It features a list of cases, in alphabetical order and grouped by topic; briefs of each case, arranged by topic; a short introduction to each topic, which places the cases into a larger context; and a helpful index. This text is one of three books in the Criminal Justice Case Briefs series, each of which provides a summary and analysis of leading cases in a particular area of criminal justice: criminal procedure law, corrections law, or juvenile law. Easily accessible to undergraduates, each volume has the same basic outline and format, which is neither exclusively "casebook" nor "textbook." The purely casebook approach is not always appropriate for undergraduates, whose primary focus is learning the law, not "how to think like a lawyer." Therefore, these books present briefs (or summaries) of the opinions, along with analyses and explanations, instead of the actual opinions themselves. This allows instructors to use the books as either supplements or as main, stand-alone texts. The volumes also include less background and extraneous material than most textbooks; the cases are presented in a context, with relevant commentary, which allows students to better understand the significance of the legal holdings, explains the Court's holdings, and places each case in context with the Court's other decisions.Hemmens, Craig is the author of 'Significant Cases in Corrections ', published 2004 under ISBN 9780195330502 and ISBN 0195330501.
