This Article does not claim completeness even within the confines of constitutional criminal procedure. During the survey period, the court decided hundreds of appeals in the general area. A gross grouping of these decisions yields the following subtopics for this Article: Arrests; Searches and Seizures; Self-Incrimination; Grand and Petit Jury Rights; and the Right to Counsel. These emphases mirror the court's 1982 docket. If only in a 'footnoteworthy' way, the court did deal with other traditional constitutional criminal procedure topics such as the following: double jeopardy; pretrial and trial identifications; speedy trials; discovery; the right to confrontation; guilty pleas and bail. The subtopics selected, however, dominated the court's docket, and they will dominate this discussion.
