This study aid features an innovative method of content organization. It uses a checklist format to lead students through questions they need to ask to fully evaluate the legal problem they are trying to solve. It also synthesizes the material in a way that most students are unable to do on their own, and assembles the different issues, presenting a clear guide to procedural analysis that students can draw upon when writing their exams. Other study aids provide sample problems, but none offer the systematic approach to problem solving found in this book.

First published in 1999, Acing Your First Year of Law School has become one of the bestselling law school preparation books of all time. Every law student will tell you that the first year is the most important and the most frustrating. Law professors do not teach students the law, instead they leave students on their own to figure out the "answer" from a series of questions. This is a manual that teaches first year law students the ten basic skills they need to know to start learning their first day and ace their first year. The Second Edition has been updated to reflect the best use of technology. It includes a Preface that addresses the Socratic Method and how to beat it. It also includes an Epilogue that focuses on tasks that are necessary to ensure a successful transition from the first to the second semester.

In a criminal procedure class, students are asked to determine whether a citizen's constitutional rights were violated, and this question is consistently posed under a myriad of factual circumstances. In order to answer the query, students would need to examine and discuss the United States Supreme Court's interpretations of the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments of the US Constitution, identifying many tests and standards from those examinations and spirited discussions. Criminal Procedure: Model Problems and Outstanding Answers documents a few of the United States Supreme Court's tests and standards from these amendments to provide a more accurate assessment of whether a "right" under the Constitution has retained its full vitality, or whether it has been modified or made less vital than originally intended. Oxford University Press equips students with an accessible guide to acing challenging criminal procedure law exams. In Criminal Procedure: Model Problems and Outstanding Answers, Carlton Bailey helps students demonstrate their knowledge of criminal procedure in the structured and sophisticated manner that professors expect on law school exams. This book provides clear introductions on the fundamental topics in criminal procedure, provides hypotheticals similar to those that students can expect to see on an exam (including multi-issue questions), and offers model answers to those hypotheticals. Professor Bailey then coaches students in how to evaluate their own work with a comprehensive self-analysis section. This book prepares students by challenging them to use the law they learn in class while also explaining the best way to express sophisticated answers on law school exams.
