This guide provides an overview of and introduction to criminal law, serving as a handy reference for seasoned lawyers and a useful research foundation for new attorneys, legal assistants, and law clerks.
This entry in the ELEMENTS OF ILLINOIS LAW series gives both seasoned and new attorneys fundamental guidance in defending clients in felony and misdemeanor cases in the Illinois courts. The authors provide observations from their own experiences in an especially challenging but rewarding area of the law, but the handbook is not intended to serve as a detailed or extensive guide for defending in a criminal prosecution.
