Steve Emanuel's First Year Questions and Answers consists of 1,144 short-answer questions, covering the six subjects usually taken by first year law students. Each question gives you a fact pattern, and then asks you to make a conclusion, usually a yes/no conclusion (e.g., "Is there an enforceable contract?"). Within each subject, the questions are arranged in approximately the order that the topics they cover occur in the Emanuel Law Outlines for that subject. Thus the Civil Procedure questions begin with questions involving personal jurisdiction, proceed to subject matter jurisdiction, then to pleading, and so on.

Based on the latest neuroscience research, this entertaining, practical guide offers law students a formula for success in school, on the bar exam, and as practicing attorneys. The process of mastering the law, either as a law student or as an attorney, becomes much easier if one has a working knowledge of the brain's basic habits. The first part of the book translates the research, explaining learning strategies that work for the brain and why others are useless. The second part explores the brain's decision-making processes and cognitive biases. Readers will gain a fluency with the biases that affect persuasion -- the hallmark of a successful lawyer. This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.
