Advanced Research in Criminal Justice

This is an LBJ School course, cross-listed with the Law School.

This course will function much like a one-semester Policy Research Project (PRP) insofar as the focus of the class will be a group research effort guided by the instructor.  The details of the project are still to be determined, but will likely be related to issues affecting women in jail.  More details will be provided as soon as possible.

Course Requirements and Grading

Students are expected to attend all classes and team meetings, participate fully in the group work activities, submit work to their teammates in a timely manner, and use their best efforts to produce work product that is well-written, accurate, and responsive to the assignments.  Written submissions will likely include both a short individual writing assignment and a team-authored report, as well as a self-assessment.

Students will be graded on the basis of the quality of their individual contributions to the group project, the overall group project (a team grade), their individual writing assignment, and on class participation.
