Crim Law exam prep open thread for the long holiday weekend

Congrats to all for getting one exam behind you, and be sure to take some special time for review and reflection on what you did right (and wrong) in the exam preparation and taking process.  Also, be sure to take some deserved time off during the holiday weekend.

On the sad (but reasonable?) assumption that you will not be able to put all future exams out of your mind during the long weekend, I have created this post to provide a forum for questions (and answers?) about our upcoming Crim Law exam.  I expect our exam to be quite similar in style and structure to those I have given in prior years (many of which can be found here and here and here), so you can/should check out past my exams to get a sense of what is on the horizon for you on December 13.

Feel free to ask any and all questions you might have about our final exam in the comments here.  (I will bring any especially important answers into the text of this post or create a new post, if needed).

Just wondering where we can find Senate Bill 184 from the Defensive Force section on the syllabus and what part of if you want us to read, Prof. Berman?

Dudley and Stephens could have learned something from these guys...

Hey Rachel et al.: Sorry about any confusion concerning "Senate Bill 184," which was the pre-codification name to the self-defense castle provision now appearing in ORC 2901.05(B)(1), which provides that "[s]ubject to [a few exceptions in] division (B)(2) of this section, a person is presumed to have acted in self defense or defense of another when using defensive force that is intended or likely to cause death or great bodily harm to another if the person against whom the defensive force is used is in the process of unlawfully and without privilege to do so entering, or has unlawfully and without privilege to do so entered, the residence or vehicle occupied by the person using the defensive force."

Professor Berman,

Have you decided when we will be having our review sessions? Thank you.
