LAW332  A  CRIMINAL PROCEDURE ADJUDICATION

Course Description
This course is the adjudication or "bail to jail" component of criminal procedure. Unlike Criminal Procedure Investigation, which primarily looks at constitutional limitations on police investigation, this course covers what happens after the arrest is made and the role of prosecutors, defense attorneys, judges, and juries. We will be reading primarily U.S. Supreme Court decisions that focus on the Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments. Topics include: charging, right to counsel, grand juries and preliminary hearings, discovery, plea bargaining, the right to jury trial, and trial rights.
