Product Description

This central authority on criminal practice in Superior Court is your best choice for practical guidance at every phase of litigation and trial. Consult it at the arraignment; trust it to answer your pretrial questions; keep it on hand when you impanel the jury and examine witnesses. The Massachusetts Superior Court Criminal Practice Manual is indispensable at each phase — whether you're for the prosecution or for the defense.
