Course Description:

This course is taught at the JAG School during their 2nd quarter, October 21, 2013 - December 20, 2013. The instructor is MAJ Sykes.

This elective explores the preparation, investigation, presentation, and defense of adult and child sexual and physical abuse, but is not a trial advocacy course. Topics will include: offender behavior; interviews of victims and witnesses; child development; “rape myths”; use of experts; victim impact. Readings will, like the class, be both theoretical and practical in nature, and will precede discussion in each class. Guest speakers will be an integral part of the class. The class is accessible to all students, but presumes a base level of criminal law knowledge.
