Nathaniel Burney's 'The Illustrated Guide to Criminal Law'

Back in December 2011, I began following an interesting project by lawyer Nathaniel Burney. At the time, Burney had recently launched a beautifully illustrated series called "The Criminal Lawyer's Guide to Criminal Law" in which he used his own drawings and text to explain criminal law concepts such as punishment, rehabilitation, deterrence and retribution.

Burney book-coverNow, Burney has gone the next logical step and packaged all of the 17 installments in his series into a book entitled, "The Illustrated Guide to Criminal Law." The 260-page book is available here through Jones McClure Publishing, and addresses the topics above and many others, including mens rea, entrapment and self-defense.

In his final installment on criminal law, which came out earlier this week, Burney notes that he will soon take on his next topic: criminal procedure.
