As a J.D., I know how important understanding and synthesizing cases is. I wrote a case brief for every case I read so that I could then pull out the points of law and put those on my outline. Of course once any particular class is over all those case briefs just sit on my computer and in the cloud and never get used again (save the occasional time I personally reference them). Thus I figured I would post them here on my website for others to read and use in class. I know how annoying those case brief websites are with their myriad advertisements or the commercial case-brief books, which are rarely as accurate as a good student would do.
You will enjoy free access to my Constitutional Criminal Procedure case briefs and outline. If you have enjoyed access to that course's materials---as many of you have---I ask you to subscribe as an A+ Member to access all my other case briefs, outlines, and other materials. You will get unlimited access for 4 years for just $24.99.
Since I began posting my Constitutional Criminal Procedure case briefs and outline on this website a few years ago, I have received an outpouring of support and gratitude from the thousands of law students, professionals, and others across the country who access this website every month. I want to thank you for visiting my website and using my materials. It means a great deal to me.
A Note on My Case Briefs
You may notice these case briefs sound a lot like the actual cases. Well, I say, is that a bad thing? I have found that the way I learn from reading cases best is to copy the actual language (with some modifications) from the opinion and put that into my case briefs and outlines. If a particular point of law is too convoluted I will put it into my own language, but as a rule I like the original language. This may not help you. It is important to discover your own best way of learning. Indeed it is the only way to truly do well in law school.
Using the Case Briefs
I encourage you to read and reference my case briefs. Feel free to copy them into your notes and/or outlines for use in class and in studying. However, while a pre-made case brief sure is convenient, it does defeat the whole purpose of having cases assigned to read: actually reading them. The only way to succeed in law school is to do the work. It's that simple (well, "simple" is relative). In any event, pre-made case briefs are great if you forgot to read a case or have lost your own case briefs.
