LAW323  A  THE ADVERSARY SYSTEM

Course Description
This course examines the impact that the Supreme Court's constitutional decisions on (i) compelled incrimination, (ii) the confrontation of witnesses and (iii) state and federal sentencing guidelines have had on the adversary system that the Constitution presupposes. Through study of these decisions, students will learn to identify the essential characteristics of the Anglo-American system of justice and discern how constitutional adjudication can strengthen or weaken the system as American society evolves.
