Course Description

This course provides an overview of criminal procedure. The Constitution is a key mechanism for regulating the behavior of police and prosecutors. In this course, we will explore the constitutional rules that constrain executive actors when they investigate crime and prosecute criminal defendants. Specifically, we study the degree to which the Fourth and Fifth Amendment limit police investigations and the ways in which constitutional guarantees of due process, counsel, equal protection, and trial by jury affect criminal prosecutions.
