Federal Criminal Practice: A Second Circuit Handbook, now in its twenty-third edition, is a respected and authoritative resource on virtually every aspect of federal criminal procedure. It is widely used by judges, defense lawyers and prosecutors, and is designed to serve both novice and experienced practitioners. This handy reference work is organized alphabetically by topic for ease of use, and includes citations to more than 4,000 cases.

This book surveys more than 50 major topics including appeals, bail, confessions, discovery, electronic surveillance, guilty pleas, indictments, sentencing and many others, and places them in the context of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure and the decisions of the United States Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Analyze your federal criminal case guided by a former federal district judge, a seasoned white-collar defense lawyer, a chief appellate assistant United States attorney and an academic at a leading law school. It contains practical advice, abundant cross-references and a comprehensive index of more than 100 pages, including hundreds of alternative terms of art.
