Pocket Prelims Out of Stock
Whether you are a seasoned public defender or a new prosecutor, Pocket Prelims is an essential guidebook for your next preliminary hearing. Based on years of first-hand experience, this book provides readers with practical advice and information on a wide range of legal issues that can arise in a preliminary hearing. It is a quick reference guide for all of those issues you know you know but can't remember at the moment. Each chapter contains either statutes, case law, definitions, or a combination of all three, for the criminal law area being addressed. In many chapters of the book, Daniel Coble included Factors to Consider when dealing with a particular case.
Preliminary hearings move quickly and can cover nearly all crimes. Because of the fast-paced nature of preliminary hearings, this book was designed to be as user-friendly as possible. The book is spiral-bound, allowing it to lay flat, and has been tabbed at each chapter. This will allow the reader to quickly find the legal issue and present a coherent argument to the court.
Be prepared and confident at your next preliminary hearing with Pocket Prelims.
