Law, Explained is a series of learning objects clarifying confusing legal terms, legal rules, and the law, especially surrounding criminal justice. These audio files are presented by Dr. Kristine Artello, an associate professor in the VCU Wilder School as well as an attorney, and Nia Rodgers, VCU librarian of Public Affairs.

Case Briefs focuses on a particular case or doctrine to help anyone understand how criminal justice in the American legal system works--or does not work, as the case may be. Dr. Artello talks with Nia about judicial review, Miranda rights, juror selection, and many other topics.

From Murder to Life After Prison illustrates the federal criminal justice process from the point of the crime reported through the alleged crimes of Skippy, Dr. Xavier’s brother. Dr. Artello and Nia walk you through step by step from criminal investigation to life after prison in this 11-part series.
