Featured Resource List

Jerold H. Israel, Yale Kamisar, Wayne R. Lafave, Nancy J. King

Criminal Procedure And The Constitution: Leading Supreme Court Cases And Introductory Text, 2005 Edition, West Pub. Co., 2005.

 

KF9618.I85 2005

This coursebook is the work of nationally renowned experts on the subject of constitutional-criminal procedure. It is ideally suited for a survey course designed to explore and critically examine how the U.S. Supreme Court has dealt with a wide range of highly controversial issues that arise at various stages of the criminal process. Considerable pains have been taken to set forth the views of all members of the Court in such landmark cases as Batson, Leon, Mapp, and Miranda and such important recent cases as Apprendi v. New Jersey and Dickerson v. United States.SV

 

 
Texas Law Review
Manual On Usage & Style
, 10th Edition, Texas Law Review Association, 2005.

KF250.T48 2005

The Manual on Usage, Style & Editing has never pretended to serve as an exhaustive grammatical guide or the final word on legal style. That field is better left to those who can occupy it with more authority. It has, however, always been intended to serve as a convenient and accessible reference tool—a pocket-sized supplement to heftier tomes on usage. It is with this purpose in mind that the Texas Law Review issues this ninth edition. The bulk of the changes accordingly reflect an effort to bring the Manual in line with standard authorities in the field.

The most obvious change in the ninth edition is the name. This change reflects the addition of a new chapter on editing. Other changes include a chart of proofreader's marks, a longer list of commonly misused words, and a general effort to simplify and update existing rules. This edition also abandons the previous division of the Manual into Rules of Style and Rules of Usage. Finally, many of the rules have been drafted permissively so as to leave writers with as much freedom as possible within the outer limits of sound grammar.
