Criminal Process examines a variety of procedures governing the prosecution of crime. It covers, in essence, criminal procedure from the time that the police have handed a case over to the lawyers.

Major topics include: prosecutorial charging discretion, judicial screening, the grand jury, discovery, speedy trial, double jeopardy, plea bargaining, jury selection, jury deliberations, sentencing, appeals, and habeas. This class is sometimes known as “Criminal Procedure II” because it picks up chronologically where Criminal Procedure ends. Criminal Procedure, however, is not a prerequisite.
