Legal educators are beginning to recognize the need for their students to hit the ground running when they graduate. This book is designed to helps students to do just that. It consists of nine simulations, covering a wide array of issues arising under the Fourth Amendment, the Fifth Amendment, and Sixth Amendment taught in the basic Criminal Procedure course and gives students the opportunity to learn essential lawyering skills. For example, it puts students in the role of counselor, trial and oral advocate, and legal writer. Some of the chapters include role summaries and require students to present testimony before the trial court hearing the defendant’s motion to suppress evidence. Others consist of transcripts of hearings and require students to present arguments to the court. Further, 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.
