How can a Criminal Law tutor help you?
Criminal law is the division of the American legal system with which people are most familiar. The word law" tends to conjure up images of criminal proceedings in popular crime dramas or the real-life trials of celebrity suspects. Many law students can even trace the origins of their passion for the law to fictional portrayals of criminal law.
Along with criminal law's cultural import, it is one of the most important courses in law school. To begin with, it is one of the required courses for first-year law students. It is also a mandatory subject on bar exams, although generalized principles of criminal law are substituted with state-specific criminal law statutes on the examinations. Perhaps the most significant aspect of criminal law is its vocational aspect. Strong skills in criminal law open up a vast array of job opportunities for law students, like careers as criminal defense attorneys and prosecutors. The opportunities available in certain practice areas can be very volatile based on the economy, but the amount of criminal law work remains relatively stable in comparison.
Criminal law, while important, is also a very difficult class. Since a typical law student takes criminal law in his or her first year of law school, students are frequently inexperienced at spotting issues in fact patterns and relating the elements of a crime to that fact pattern. Crimes such as homicide and burglary, the definitions of which most people take for granted, will be broken down into very specific elements. What are the elements of burglary? When do they apply? What is the difference between larceny and embezzlement? What is the difference between murder and manslaughter? What is the difference between first and second degree murder? And most importantly, how do you spot the issues concerning the elements of a crime, intent, and defense in a fact pattern?
