<b>By the one-time federal prosecutor for the Southern District of New York, an important overview of the way our justice system works, and why the rule of law is essential to our society. Using case histories, personal experiences and his own inviting writing and teaching style, Preet Bharara shows the thought process we need to best achieve truth and justice in our daily lives and within our society.</b><br /><br />Preet Bharara has spent much of his life examining our legal system, pushing to make it better, and prosecuting those looking to subvert it. Bharara believes in our system and knows it must be protected, but to do so, we must also acknowledge and allow for flaws in the system and in human nature.<br />     The book is divided into four sections: Inquiry, Accusation, Judgment and Punishment. He shows why each step of this process is crucial to the legal system, but he also shows how we all need to think about each stage of the process to achieve truth and justice in our daily lives.<br />     Bharara uses anecdotes and case histories from his legal career--the successes as well as the failures--to illustrate the realities of the legal system, and the consequences of taking action (and in some cases, not taking action, which can be just as essential when trying to achieve a just result). <br />     Much of what Bharara discusses is inspiring--it gives us hope that rational and objective fact-based thinking, combined with compassion, can truly lead us on a path toward truth and justice. Some of what he writes about will be controversial and cause much discussion. Ultimately, it is a thought-provoking, entertaining book about the need to find the humanity in our legal system--and in our society.

<div><b>An incisive biography of the Supreme Court's enigmatic Chief Justice, taking us inside the momentous legal decisions of his tenure so far</b></div> <div><br /></div> <div>John Roberts was named to the Supreme Court in 2005 claiming he would act as a neutral umpire in deciding cases. His critics argue he has been anything but, pointing to his conservative victories on voting rights and campaign finance. Yet he broke from orthodoxy in his decision to preserve Obamacare. How are we to understand the motives of the most powerful judge in the land? </div> <div><br /></div> <div></div> <div>In <i>The Chief</i>, award-winning journalist Joan Biskupic contends that Roberts is torn between two, often divergent, priorities: to carry out a conservative agenda, and to protect the Court's image and his place in history. Biskupic shows how Roberts's dual commitments have fostered distrust among his colleagues, with major consequences for the law. Trenchant and authoritative, The Chief reveals the making of a justice and the drama on this nation's highest court. </div> <div><br /></div>

The biggest revelation from the Second Confession is Chris Watts’ story about taking his girls to CERVI 319 while they were still alive. Watts said it, the Rzucek lawyers repeated it on Dr. Phil along with the Rzuceks themselves. The Weld County District Attorney assigned to the Watts case has also signed off on this version. The media have since reported on this version as fact. Finally, social media has recycled this version as if it’s fact. Even a few credible YouTubers have commented on this aspect as if it’s reliable. <br /><br />The popular mythology surrounding this case – as it stands now – is that Watts killed the girls early on Monday morning at the Anadarko site. We know this because the source – Chris Watts – told us.<br /><br />ANNIHILATION reveals a terrifying counter narrative. Not only is the popular mythology wrong, but the truth is far worse, far more horrible and far stranger than we have dared contemplate.<br />

In its Sixth Edition, Deposition Rules remains the essential deposition handbook for busy practitioners: a ready and convenient, on-the-go reference, it provides quick access to the rules, procedures, and practices that govern deposition practice, and it answers the most commonly asked questions about depositions. Deposition Rules also provides "Practice Tips," which are drawn from the actual conduct of counsel in depositions, because modern deposition practice has evolved at least as much from "what works" as it has from "what is required." This Sixth Edition incorporates all amendments current to December 2014 to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure as well as the Federal Rules of Evidence

<P>Techniques in the investigative interviewing and interrogation of victims, witnesses and suspects of crime vary around the world, according to a country’s individual legal system, religion and culture. Whereas some countries have developed certain interview protocols for witnesses (such as the ABE Guidelines and the NICHD protocol when interviewing children) and the PEACE model of interviewing suspects, other countries continue to use physical coercion and other questionable tactics to elicit information. </P><br /><P>Until now, there has been very little empirical information about the overall interview and interrogation practices in non-western countries, especially the Middle and Far East. This book addresses this gap, bringing together international experts from over 25 countries and providing in-depth coverage of the various interview and interrogation techniques used across the globe. Volume 1 focuses on the interviewing of victims and witnesses, aiming to provide the necessary information for an understanding of how law enforcement agencies around the world gain valuable information from victims and witnesses in criminal cases. Together, the chapters that make up this volume and the accompanying volume on interviewing suspects, draw on specific national case studies and practices, examine contemporary challenges and identify best practice to enable readers to develop an international, as well as a comparative, perspective of developments worldwide in this important area of criminal investigation.</P><br /><P></P><br /><P>This book will be an essential resource for academics and students engaged in the study of policing, criminal investigation, forensic psychology and criminal law. It will also be of great interest to practitioners, legal professionals and policymakers around the world.</P>

Twenty-seven years after her death, the State of Connecticut spent some $25 million to convict her friend and neighbor, Michael Skakel, of the murder. The trial ignited a media firestorm that transfixed the nation. Now Skakel’s cousin Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., solves the baffling whodunit and clears Michael Skakel’s name.<BR> In this revised edition, which includes developments following the Connecticut Supreme Court decision, Kennedy chronicles how Skakel was railroaded amidst a media frenzy and a colorful cast of characters—from a crooked cop and a narcissistic defense attorney to a parade of perjuring witnesses.
