Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

A Selection of Cases  Vol  1

Excerpt from A Selection of Cases, Vol. 1: From the State Trials; Trials for Treason; (1327 1660) The following pages are an attempt to supply a want which I have often felt in the course of teaching. Again and again the question is asked, Where is the authority for such a proposition to be found? It is easy enough to say the Statute Book, or the State Trials, but to refer a student to either of those works has the effect of deterring him from ever again seeking for original information. My object in this book has therefore been twofold, to place within a small compass the authorities upon which certain points of constitutional law depend, and thus to enable the student to refer to the authorities himself, and form his own opinion upon them. In the generality of cases students do not do this, but form their opinions from the author, whoever he may be, whose work they are for the time studying. I can make no higher claim for this book than that of a compilation, and no one is more sensible than I am how much, even as a compilation, it might be improved by original research into records and cases that are not reported in the ordinary books. But my object has been not so much to seek out new materials as to utilize old materials that are accessible to everyone. I am also sensible of many errors both of commission and omission. N 0 amount of care in a book of this nature could prevent some errors creeping in, and although I have done my best to ensure accuracy I can only flatter myself that I have avoided any very serious inaccuracy. The law of treason was selected as the first subject to be dealt with from its interest and importance; and I have thought it well to confine the present volume to trials for treason before the ordinary courts, leaving the cases of impeachment for treason to be dealt with under the general head of proceedings in Parliament. I have gone at some length into that kind of treason that relates to religion; as in the ordinary constitutional histories so little is said on the subject, it is only fair to those who perished on the scaffold or in rebellion against the government, that the nature of the government against which they rebelled should be seen in its true colours; and as no fair idea of the incidence of the law of treason can be obtained that does not take into account not only the law as to political, but also as to religious offences.

Two years ago Mr Oates was there with Mr Clay, but not since. Lord Chief Justice. Call Mr Clay again to confront him in that. Oates. I did not know Mr Clay two years ago. Lord Chief Justice.

Famous Cases

In Famous Cases: Nine Trials that Changed the Law the authors have painstakingly assembled the background to a selection of leading cases in English law.

Famous Cases

A collection of some of the most famous cases in English law - with an explantion of how they changed things - by two leading commentators. Every UK lawyer knows of Woolmington v. Director of Public Prosecutions, the ruling which established the ëgolden thread of English lawí whereby the burden of proof lies with the prosecutor in a criminal trial, even in the case of murder. But who was ëWoolmingtoní and how many people know that he escaped the death penalty at the eleventh hour, or that he was twice tried for murder? ëLords give man back his lifeí as the Western Gazette put it. Likewise, in the civil law, how and why did a Mrs. Donoghue come to be drinking a bottle of ginger beer containing the remnants of a snail, an event which would ultimately determine ñ at the highest level - that ëthe categories of negligence are never closedí? And how did the tranquil market town of Wednesbury come to be legal shorthand for ëunreasonablenessí. In Famous Cases: Nine Trials that Changed the Law the authors have painstakingly assembled the background to a selection of leading cases in English law. From the Mareva case (synonymous with a type of injunction) to Lord Denningís classic ruling in the High Trees House case (the turning point for equitable estoppel) to that of the former Chilean head of state General Pinochet (in which the House of Lords heard the facts a second time) the authors offer a refreshing perspective to whet the appetite of every law student, general reader or seasoned practitioner interested in how English law evolves.

The Role of the State Trial Judge in Criminal Cases

See Chapter 2, "The Federal Interest in Effective State Trial Courts." 2. A recent report indicates that in 1991, slightly more than 10,000 habeas corpus petitions were filed from a population of over 750,000 state prisoners (1.3%).

The Role of the State Trial Judge in Criminal Cases


Trial Advocacy in Action

Newton's case file, United States v. McKay, is built around the tragic story of McKay and his victims and includes twenty advocacy exercises from all major stages of a criminal case.

Trial Advocacy in Action

Defendant Reginald McKay, a mentally disturbed American who became a "home-grown" Islamic terrorist, poisoned members of a Jewish temple during Passover seder. After one of the poisoned congregants died, the Feds got a lucky break thanks to an eyewitness and modern computer forensics and quickly built a death penalty case against McKay. Newton's case file, United States v. McKay, is built around the tragic story of McKay and his victims and includes twenty advocacy exercises from all major stages of a criminal case. Each of these twenty exercises will introduce a wrinkle-involving a constitutional challenge to procedures or evidence-that students then analyze through the lens of the Supreme Court's decisions in landmark criminal procedure cases such as Batson v. Kentucky, Jackson v. Virginia, and United States v. Cronic, among others. Taken as a whole, these exercises track the maneuverings of a complex criminal defense and prosecution, starting with pretrial motions; continuing through jury selection, trial, and sentencing; and concluding with postconviction motions. An instructor using Trial Advocacy in Action may, as desired, direct students either to prepare short written pleadings or to practice oral advocacy in support of their legal arguments. This fusion of factually compelling scenarios and intellectually challenging legal doctrines creates a robust learning experience that seeks to hone students' skills regarding both legal analysis and legal advocacy concerning constitutional issues that arise throughout the entire course of a criminal case. Trial Advocacy in Action is ideal for use in upper-level criminal procedure classes, law school mock trial competitions, and continuing legal education (CLE) seminars for new criminal practitioners.
