Criminal Procedure Simulations: Bridge to Practice
McGeorge School of Law Teaching Materials
  • Michael Vitiello, University of Pacific McGeorge School of Law
Legal educators recognize the need for students to hit the ground running when they graduate. This book is designed to help students do just that. It consists of nine simulations, covering a wide array of issues arising under the 4th, 5th, and 6th Amendments, giving students the opportunity to learn essential lawyering skills. For example, it puts students in roles of counselor, trial and oral advocate, and legal writer, and requires students to present testimony before the trial court hearing the defendant's motion to suppress evidence. Written by an experienced educator and expert in criminal procedure, the teacher's manual describes how these exercises can be successfully integrated into a traditional "podium" course.
