Dr. Katherine Pang, assistant professor of criminal justice, will publish a criminal law textbook next year.
Published by Carolina Academic Press, Constructing a Case: An Integrated Approach to Criminal Law will be marketed to criminal justice and criminal law professors world-wide.
“The purpose of this textbook is to provide a model for students to learn how to think about criminal law in the context of the criminal justice and legal system,” said Pang. “Students will learn not only the essential elements of various crimes but will have the opportunity to integrate criminal law, criminal procedure, and evidence by learning how to construct a case and applying their knowledge in an applied learning activity; a mock criminal trial.”
