    Criminal justice professionals often do not receive the training they need to recognize constitutional principles that apply to their everyday work. Constitutional Law for Criminal Justice offers a way to solve this problem by providing a comprehensive, well-organized, and up-to-date analysis of constitutional issues that affect criminal justice professionals. Constitutional Law for Criminal Justice makes complex concepts accessible to students at all levels of criminal justice education. The chapters begin with an outline and end with a summary. Key terms and concepts are defined in the glossary. Tables, figures, and charts are used to synthesize and simplify information. The result is an incomparably clear, student-friendly textbook that has remained a leader in criminal justice education for 50 years.
