Course Description:


COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course examines the process of criminal litigation, beginning with the arrest or with the filing of charges and continuing through trial and sentencing. Topics that will get the most extensive coverage in the course include right to counsel and effective assistance of counsel, with special attention to litigation regarding inadequate indigent defense systems; pre-trial detention and the right to bail; prosecutorial discretion in charging, bail, and grand jury practice; joinder of charges and defendants; discovery; double jeopardy; and plea bargaining. Minimal coverage will be given to law and procedure regarding jury trials and sentencing. The course gives special attention to differences in procedural rules across state and federal jurisdictions.

ENROLLMENT NOTE: This course may be taken before or after (and with or without) Criminal Investigation. However, this course (whether or not paired with Criminal Investigation) pre-empts the four-credit Criminal Procedure Survey course; students who take the Survey may not take either Criminal Adjudication or Criminal Investigation. (Students who plan to practice criminal law or who have a particular interest in the subject matter of either Criminal Investigation or Criminal Adjudication should take this course and its counterpart, Criminal Investigation, rather than the Survey. Criminal Investigation and Adjudication together provide more in-depth study of criminal procedure.)

Course Requirement:Flex examination at end of the semester.
Mutually Exclusive with: Criminal Procedure Survey
