Abstract:     
This Essay explores my experience teaching first-year Criminal Law and offers responses to questions like: (1) how many credits should the Criminal Law course receive; (2) what should one include in the syllabus; (3) how much of what is in the syllabus must be covered; and (4) even if students forget the many nuances of the course, what should they absolutely take away from the course. The Essay concludes by offering some limited comments directed gently to my senior colleagues about teaching this generation of first-year law students.
