This feels spot on for CrimLaw but not ConLaw IMO. If you boil down ConLaw, it is actually much easier to apply than most other classes (compared to Contracts and Crim and Property).
Picco and I have con law together. the exam didn't test what we learned in the course or major doctrinal points in con law.
Our crim law exam is a 3 hour exercise in statutory interpretation. The professor told me to use cases minimally, as he feels they can be distracting sometimes. I kid you not.
