Publisher's Summary

In Criminal Law, we examine the black letter rules of criminal law most commonly tested on the MBE and in law school. By combining a simple approach to legal learning with the innovative appeal of an audio study aid, Criminal Law provides you with a concise overview of the subject matter in a way that makes it easy to learn, understand, and memorize. Criminal Law also includes numerous hypothetical examples and analyses to help you apply the rules of law to analyze any given fact patterns.

Key topics include:

  • Elements of a crime (actus reus, mens rea, causation)
  • Accomplice liability
  • Inchoate offenses (solicitation, conspiracy, attempt)
  • Homicide (common law murder, first degree murder, manslaughter, the felony murder rule)
  • Crimes against the person (assault, false imprisonment, kidnapping, sex offenses)
  • Crimes against property (larceny, embezzlement, false pretenses, robbery)
  • Burglary and arson
  • Defenses to crimes (insanity, intoxication, self-defense, necessity, duress, consent, mistake)

Great concise outline, well worth it

These books were great overviews for the main bar topics. I found them to be a great resource since I commute a lot. great way to refresh (or learn) the material for the bar. February 2019 bar taker in IL.

Much too superficial, short but also repetitive

Not recommended. This is absurdly superficial and not well narrated. I have the feeling the voice actor doesn’t understand what he’s talking about, he’s just reading. Despite its brevity (each "chapter" is just a few minutes) there’s also lots of fluff. It would probably be 15% shorter if they had cut out all the “Lets discuss” “Let’s move on” “In this chapter we will…” “In this chapter we discussed…” “in the next section…”

Helps to refresh

Not codes for Texas but, it’s a good general refresher. This is worth it to just listen to while driving or cleaning …

Explain it to me like I'm five-michael scott

I quote Michael Scott in a good way. This boom is wonderful and the narrator is impeccable. You don't space out like you easily can in a classroom. It is Simple and to the point. Excellent read. No fluff, no rants, nothing unnecessary just the paetta you'd highlight in a textbook on this subject. Explains in the simplest of terms and understandable for any education level. I recommend this to anyone and everything. Knowledge is power.

Easy to follow and understand!

I'm using these to study for the UBE. I only have 2 suggestions for improvement: 1. Make PDFs of the outlines available. Listeners could follow along with the audio, and I think this will help the listener retain the information. 2. Make audio books for the other UBE subjects (Evidence, Civil Procedure, Family Law, Conflicts of Laws, etc) because I would snatch them up!

Excellent Review of the Substantive Law

I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about this Audio Outline. I have used other audio outlines from Flemings and other authors and I have to say this review was on point, clear, and at a fraction of the cost. In addition, the hypothetical questions at the end are great and a really good reinforcement tool to differentiate points of law and fact which may trip you on the actual MBE questions. Flemings runs between $50 to a $100 per lecture. However, the Flemings audio lecture comes with a copy of the outline and 3 essay questions at the end (all previous Bar questions). I understand these audio outlines do come with a written outline to follow, still at a reasonable price. All in all, a great Audio Outline and I would recommend it to all prospective law school students and bar takers.

Love these! Need the rest of the MBE subjects!

I really liked all of the outlines in this series. I thought they gave a comprehensive outline of the subject. I also like the examples at the end. I listen to the outlines while I am getting ready for work or cleaning the kitchen. I am taking the CA Bar for the second time in July 2018 and these are a great refresher and way to maximize my time.

Where’s the rest of the MBE subjects? :)

Need Civ Pro, Evidence, and Criminal Procedure, please!

Ideal refresher

Cruelly missing chapter topics making it difficult to jump to a particular study point.
