Read the course description below to learn how this course will be taught.
This course explores constitutional limitations upon the investigation of crime. Its focus is on the law governing searches, seizures, and police interrogation. Topics include the nature of a fourth amendment search; arrest and investigative detention; warrants and exceptions to the warrant requirement; confessions; and the application of the exclusionary rule. Grades will be based almost entirely upon a timed final examination.
A note on the textbook: If you think this is the only criminal procedure course you'll take, you can just get the required textbook, Criminal Procedure: Investigation and the Right to Counsel, Fourth Edition. If you think you'd like to take the Prosecution course in the spring, though, get the comprehensive textbook instead: Comprehensive Criminal Procedure, Fifth Edition. This book as the same content as the required book with the same pagination, so you can follow along in the fall semester, and also contains the materials you'll need in the spring.
