This course, sometimes referred to as "policing," explores constitutional limits on criminal investigation. It focuses primarily on the Fourth Amendemnt law governing searches and seizures, and on the Fifth and Sixth amendment law governing law enforcement questioning. Fourth Amendment topics include the meanings of "search" and "seizure," the warrant requirement, warrant exceptions, the exclusionary rule, and other limits on remedies. Fifth and Sixth Amendment topics include Miranda violations, and center on police interrogation and lineups. The course will be graded on a letter-grade basis for all students who are not taking the class credit/fail, and will satisfy the constitutional law II requirement. Grades will be based upon an open-book final examination.
