Using the tried-and-true Examples & Explanations pedagogy, Examples & Explanations for Criminal Law integrates textual content with well-written and comprehensive examples, explanations, and questions to test students' comprehension of the materials and to provide practice applying the information to fact patterns. The questions are reminiscent of those found on a bar or law school entrance test in that they pose multiple problems with a single set of facts.
