Course Description:

NOTE: This course is intended for students who do not expect to practice criminal law and who seek a brief overview of criminal procedure. Students with a particular interest in the subject matter of either Criminal Investigation or Criminal Adjudication should take one or both of those courses. Those planning to practice criminal law or who have a significant interest in the field should take both the Investigation and Adjudication courses, which together provide a more in-depth study of criminal procedure. Students who take this course may NOT also take either Criminal Adjudication or Criminal Investigation.

The Constitution is the primary 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, equal protection, and trial by jury affect criminal prosecutions.
