Used 7th edition as secondary material for teaching undergrad CrimLaw

By Socratic Law Prof on Aug 18, 2005

The layout of the book is user friendly, and the case extracts are concise. I designated it as a reference book for my students and placed it on call in the library for them to review. It can be overly simplistic for an advanced reader, but on target for a good majority of freshman students. Maybe the 8th edition will show some evolution.

easy law read

By Foggy on Jan 12, 2013

required for college class, lots of details easy law read, but not as in depth as i would like, but ok

Money saver

By Jprz4 on Feb 20, 2013

Just like my criminal procedures book I will be needing this for more than one class, due to this class having a 1 and 2 course structure. Amazon does it every time.

no recommendation

A Customer on May 19, 2000

I used Criminal Law by Gardner and Anderson as my text when I taught an undergrad Criminal Law class. I found it overly simplistic, even for that level, and left my students with too many loose ends. The case excerpts used are drastically edited, sometimes only a sentence, which does not help demonstrate the proposition the cases supposedly stand for. It seemed that the authors also spent an inordinate amount of text on relatively unimportant topics. I also found the instructor's edition to be unhelpful.

It is a great textbook that allows one to understand the various rules and laws that are part of our Criminal Law system.

Book not as described

By Coco on Oct 16, 2011

I cannot actually review the book as it is not a bound book so it was never opened. If you by this book, please be aware it is a loose leaf edition.

do the crime do the time.

By Professional Student on Feb 15, 2013

Here is a book that is direct and to the point about the law. As much as the "politicaly Correct" want to twist the law this edition makes it clear, when where, and why the law was created. Let the lawyers have their fight in court,that is what we have courts for. Yet the book tells you what the laws is. It is your own Damn fault if you violate the law then have to do the time.

Read Carefully

By Wallflower1987 on Feb 23, 2012

This was sent later than it was supposed to be, so it obviously arrived a few weeks into class (after first test). It also arrived as loose-leaf. I made it work, but I was shocked and it is very inconvenient, since reselling is pretty much out of the question. That was not noted prominently, if it was noted at all. Make sure you read the product description more carefully than I did. I have never seen a book shipped that way.

School purposes

By T. Dujon on Dec 25, 2012

Great for the price, not much I can say it was for school so I needed the book and didn't want to pay too much.
