An experiment. This website attempts to provide virtually all of the supplemental materials online to the students in the Criminal Law course. In past years, these materials were published and sold through the law school's bookstore.
Preparing for class. You should prepare your materials for class at least several days in advance. Why? There are approximately 100 students enrolled in this course. It is doubtful that the website can support so many people simultaneously. Besides, Murphy's Law dictates that computer systems or printers fail when you most need them. If you wait until just before a particular class session to start preparing for class, you may find that access to a computer terminal is impossible, the network is down, or the printer will not work. For your own good, DO NOT wait until the evening before (or the morning of) class to go online to access these materials. Prepare your materials well in advance of each class session; then prepare yourself for class at a convenient time.
Materials. The materials on this site are for use in our Criminal Law class. Researchers should not rely on these materials. The cases, statutes and other materials may or may not be current. Cases may have been overruled; statutes may have been repealed. We study law the way it was, the way it is, and the way it may be in the future. These materials are helpful to us in our quest to understand the criminal law. If you need current statutes or case law, you will need to cite check the case or cases, or check the currency of the statute or statutes you are attempting to use.
LINKS: Underlined listings in blue typeface are "links." Simply "click" on any link with your left mouse button and the listed material will appear on your computer screen. You then have three options: Read the material on-line, save it to disk, or print it.
