This course deals with the judicial phase of the criminal justice process, from the decision to bring criminal charges through trial and sentencing. Along the way, it covers the charging decision, the grand jury, bail, pretrial detention, the right to a speedy trial, discovery, the right to an impartial trial, the right to effective assistance of counsel, plea bargaining, guilty pleas, and sentencing. Although the course will cover several statutory rights and selected provisions of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, the major focus is on federal constitutional limitations on criminal procedure. This course satisfies the Con Law II requirement.
