In conjunction with Criminal Law, but given as a separate course, is Criminal Procedure. Here you will learn that The first eight amendments to the United States Constitution are applicable to the States via the Fourteenth Amendment, which therefore made the following individual rights binding on the States: the Fourth Amendment prohibition against unreasonable Searches and Seizures; the Fifth Amendment’s privilege against compulsory self-incrimination, and prohibition against double jeopardy; the Sixth Amendment’s right to a speedy, public trial by jury, the right to confront witnesses and assistance of counsel for any case which imposes jail time; and the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment. There will be many cases you will read about the “Exclusionary Rule” (and its numerous exceptions) which basically states that all evidence obtained in violation of any of a defendant’s constitutional rights is inadmissible at trial and all evidence obtained from exploitation of the illegally gained evidence is the “fruit of the poisonous tree” are also excluded.

Bill Hansult is a practicing California attorney and launched Side-Bar to help students pass the California and UBE exams at the lowest possible cost. He spent two years developing a system that works for both California and UBE states. The program differs from many other programs because it does not use lectures.

Instead, he provides students with outlines, practice tests and a schedule. It is the same memory reinforcement system that Bill used to pass the California Bar exam several years ago. After students master a long outline, they move to smaller and smaller ones, until a week before the exam. At that point, students switch to a "Bar Bones" outline which includes everything in 12 pages and is used as a refresher.
