This book is new, which means that it is expensive. It is also heavy, but is an interactive casebook. It has an ebook version/app that comes with the book.

Second hand copies are available on the internet;, for example, is selling it half-price; others are cheaper than that. Also, if some of you are ebook people and others are hardcover people who do not plan to use the ebook access, there is nothing stopping anyone from sharing the book. Just saying.

The second required book is Skills & Values: Criminal Procedure
