The 2013 defense manual included 26 chapters on topics ranging from first appearance to school interrogations to special education. The 2015 edition adds 129 pages of information, including new chapters on expungement, sex offender registration and deregistration, and school discipline cases. The 2015 edition also includes significant revisions and additions to the chapters on detention and first appearance (in light of House Bill 14-1032) and the chapter on prosecution in adult court (in light of litigation developments since the change in the direct file statute in 2012). There are also additions to the chapters on shackling, pretrial alternatives and consequences of a plea, severance, discovery, and interrogations. All of the chapters have been updated to include changes to the law since the publication of the first edition.
