Criminal Procedure: Investigation

Course Description:

Introduction to the procedure for the enforcement of criminal law. Special emphasis on the constitutional rights of the criminal defendant, including right to counsel, search and seizure, self-incrimination, wiretapping and electronic eavesdropping, police interrogation and pre-trial identification, and the use of illegally obtained evidence. Bar Course.

Class Notes:

Bar course. UP point eligible course. Subject to grade curve. Attendance is mandatory.  This course primarily focuses on the 4th Amendment’s prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures, but it also touches on the 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination. If you are interested in only taking one criminal procedure class for the bar, this course covers the material that is most heavily tested.
