Overview

The popular Glannon Guide to Criminal Law is a concise, clear, effective review of criminal law topics organized around multiple-choice questions. Employing a student-friendly, accessible tone, this text includes brief explanatory text about each topic under discussion, followed by one or two multiple-choice questions. After each question, the author explains how the correct choice was chosen and clarifies why other options were not correct. A more sophisticated “Closer” question at the end of each chapter challenges students to stretch their analytical abilities and examine subtle nuances of the topic. Unlike other titles, this approach emphasizes learning the concepts, rather than mastering test-taking techniques.

The author has thoroughly updated the Third Edition and has added numerous new hypotheticals including many that feature situations involving the Model Penal Code.

Hallmark features:

• Integrates multiple-choice questions into a full-fledged review of first-year criminal law course.

Student-friendly, accessible tone emphasizes concepts of law , rather than test-taking strategies.

Lead-up discussion of law in the text prepares students to learn effectively from subsequent questions.

Clear explanations of correct and incorrect answers help to clarify nuances in the law.

Multiple-choice questions are sophisticated but fair , neither too difficult nor unrealistically straightforward.

• Equally useful to all students, regardless of whether they will be tested by multiple-choice questions on their exams.

• Embodies a far more user-friendly and interactive approach than other exam preparation aids.

• A more challenging final question in each chapter (the “ Closer”) illustrates a more sophisticated problem in the area under discussion.

• “Closing Closer” questions in the last chapter provide practice and helpful review of concepts in earlier chapters.

• Valuable exam-taking pointers interspersed within the substantive text.

The Third Edition of this popular title has been updated throughout and features:

New Multiple choice questions throughout

• New hypotheticals featuring the Model Penal Code, including Model Penal Code Closing Closers
