This casebook is a work in progress. I am heavily indebted to material from Sam Kamins, Jeannie Suk Gersen, David Ball & Michelle Oberman, Elizabeth Tanaka, and Alice Ristroph (the first four on H20 and Ristroph from an open source CALI eLangdell book https://www.cali.org/criminal-law-ristroph). I am also grateful to research and other assistance from Jimmy Nguyen, Amina Rana, Maria Raneri, and Samantha Mintz-Agnello. All mistakes are my own, and feedback is welcome at any time.

Tanaka Criminal Law Casebook

2022
This casebook includes an introduction to important principles of criminal law and how issues of mental health, race, sex, gender, and sexual orientation have been treated by the legal system.  This casebook should invite meaningful discussions about the role of race in the legal system, including policies regarding policing, discretion, and diversionary programs. Although the subject of criminal law cannot be taught without the use of cases and resources that include distressing details, traumatizing material was avoided when it was not necessary to the purposes of this course.
