'The Law of the Police' by Rachel Harmon

'The Law of the Police' by Rachel Harmon

In The Law of the Police (Wolters Kluwer), Rachel A. Harmon of UVA Law takes on the question of how the law shapes police-citizen encounters and how the law might be leveraged to make policing serve the public better. This is the first casebook to look at the laws that govern police conduct in the United States. 

Harmon serves as Associate Reporter of Principles of the Law, Policing. At UVA Law, she directs the Center for Criminal Justice, and teaches in the areas of criminal law and procedure, policing and civil rights.
