Course Details

Criminal Process

Criminal Process examines the law governing lawyers and judges once the prosecution decides to press criminal charges against a suspect. This class covers, for example, prosecutors’ discretion in charging, grand jury proceedings, discovery, jury selection, the defendant’s right to counsel, and defense counsel’s obligations at trial and in plea bargaining. In other words, the class picks up where Constitutional Criminal Procedure ends. Constitutional Criminal Procedure, however, is not a prerequisite. Evaluation: class participation and exam.
