Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! In this episode from our "Listen and Learn" series, we go through an attack plan for how you might approach a Miranda issue on an exam question, and look at specific rules you'll want to address in your answer.

In this episode we discuss:

  • An attack plan for approaching questions involving Miranda issues
  • The constitutional basis for Miranda warnings
  • The definition of "custodial interrogation"
  • How a suspect can invoke or waive their rights
  • Analyzing two hypos illustrating how Miranda issues show up on an exam
