The authors explore several areas of criminal law and criminal procedure, specifically, a defendant's right to counsel at line-ups, establishing probable cause with first-time informants, changing venue based on pretrial publicity, impeachment of witnesses through the use of prior convictions, necessity of instructing the jury on manslaughter in homicide cases, retroactive or prospective application of changes in the law, requiring stated reasons for sentences, applying the exclusionary rule in probation and parole revocation proceedings, and the scope of the Brady rule, all of which present questions yet to be resolved by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
