I will publish my first e-book soon. The e-books will help pre-law students and law students not only understand law school exams but also succeed on law school exams. Therefore, this e-book will examine the law school exam: one section at a time.
Legal writing professors teach law students to dissect the law school hypothetical (exam) into a formula: the Conclusion/Issue, Rule of law & Rule Explanation, Analysis & Rebuttal, and Conclusion (CREARC). This formula is not exhaustive, but it provides a general framework for law students to examine a hypothetical case.
To discuss briefly:
An issue is the legally significant facts that bring the parties to court. The rule of law is a law the court used to guide its decision. The rule explanation elaborates on any vague terms, policy analysis, and the court's past usage. The analysis applies the rules to the facts. The defense discusses any counterarguments. The conclusion summarizes the outcome.
This e-book offers 10 exams and 10 answers on criminal law. This e-book is the first book in the series: Issue Spotting.
I will write a 15-book series with diverse law-school subjects around these three categories: (1) Issue Spotting, (2) Rule of law & Rule Explanation, and (3) Application, Rebuttal, & Conclusion.
