The book Introduction to Criminal Law is written by Andy Schmitz. Laws differ significantly from state to state. Throughout the United States, each state and federal government criminalizes different behaviors. Although this plethora of laws makes American legal studies more challenging for faculty and students, the size, cultural makeup, and geographic variety of our country require this type of legal system.
Laws are not static. As society changes, so do the laws that govern behavior. Evolving value systems naturally lead to new laws and regulations that support modern beliefs. Although a certain stability is essential for rule compliance, occasionally the rules must change.
