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. Though the Fourth Amendment is the centerpiece of this course, the Fifth Amendment right against compelled self-incrimination also figures prominently. This course satisifies the Con Law II requirement.
