Providing a current view that prompts students to read and analyze, Contemporary Criminal Law: Concepts, Cases, and Controversies, Sixth Edition, by Matthew Lippman, combines the concepts taught in undergraduate criminal law courses with thought-provoking cases and engaging learning tools. 

The text uses real-life examples that students connect to and recognize to cover emerging legal topics including constitutional rights, consent, arson, identity theft, and hate crimes. Lippman clearly defines and explains criminal law and defenses and provides cases and discussion questions to stimulate critical thinking and in-class discussion. Every chapter includes cases, case notes, model penal code and discussion boxes, and learning tools.
