Constitutional Criminal Procedure


Publication Date



The January 2021 Capitol Hill riots, the summer 2020 Black Lives Matter protests, the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, the wave of state and local reforms to policing powers, and increasingly pervasive use of technology in criminal investigations are the contemporary national issues that are captured in the Sixth Edition of Constitutional Criminal Procedure.

The Sixth Edition offers maximum pedagogical freedom to craft an exciting course using seminal U.S. Supreme Court cases, sample court documents, illuminating graphics, and problem-solving opportunities throughout a text that maintains its relevance and user-friendly structure for new and old adopters alike. It excerpts cutting-edge law review articles, emergent social science research, and interdisciplinary essays, as well as infusing insights from respected legal experts and other significant 21st century voices.

The Sixth Edition also presents an exciting new co-author collaboration between former federal prosecutor, Professor Lenese C. Herbert of Howard University School of Law, and Professor Cynthia E. Jones of the American University Washington College of Law, who worked as a trial attorney at the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia and later became the agency director. Both experienced law professors, Professors Herbert and Jones have made effective use of their “across-the-aisle” collaboration in the Sixth Edition of Constitutional Criminal Procedure.
