Criminal Law

This course introduces the student to substantive criminal law by reviewing the theories and rules for imposing criminal liability. The goal is to convey both a familiarity with modern criminal codes and an appreciation for the larger conceptual context in which the rules appear. The most important general doctrines are discussed, including those governing the interpretation of offense definitions, general defenses such as insanity and self defense, and doctrines imputing conduct to an actor, such as complicity and omission liability. Inchoate, and homicide offenses also are examined. Evaluation: Final examination Teaching Method: Lecture and discussion Text: Various by instructor.
