Now in its second edition, Core Criminal Procedure uses bar-style multiple-choice questions to teach and review the core Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendment topics covered in most law school criminal procedure classes. It is the only supplement on the market to both provide comprehensive coverage and use the format of the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE). Core Criminal Procedure was written for:

  • Students, who can use the book in parallel with their assigned criminal procedure reading and to prepare for the Multistate Bar Exam at the same time;
  • Professors, who can use the book to solidify class assignments, to help develop required formative assessments, and to prepare their students for the Multistate Bar Exam; and
  • Bar examinees, who can use the book to either learn criminal procedure for the first time or to refresh themselves on discrete topics, in preparation for the Multistate Bar Exam.

The first half of the book consists of 500 multiple choice questions, grouped together by topic. Each question uses the same testing format used by the NCBE. Within each grouping, questions begin with the basic concepts and then increase in complexity. The second edition includes 50 new questions and has been updated to include every major Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendment Supreme Court decision through the 2020-2021 term.

The second half of the book consists of succinct explanations, with citations to relevant Supreme Court and other major criminal procedure decisions. Because Core Criminal Procedure focuses on comprehensive coverage and major cases, this book can be used as a complement to any criminal procedure casebook.
