LAW320  R  SUBSTANTIVE CRIMINAL LAW

Course Description
The basic aim of this course is to introduce students to the general criminal law: doctrines through which we determine whether an act proscribed by the criminal law has occurred and whether the accused is blame worthy. The secondary purpose of this course is to familiarize students with issues in statutory construction. You will be expected to know the criminal law doctrines, be fluent in the vocabulary in which they are expressed, and understand certain fundamentals of construing criminal statutes.
