Course Notes: 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.
