This course examines through experiential learning the law and conduct of modern criminal investigations. In a highly-technological and globalized world, we explore how today’s criminal investigations utilize cutting edge investigative techniques, adapt to the huge storage footprint of individuals and corporations, and accommodate our competing interests in personal autonomy and effective law enforcement. We will use as our lens a series of high-profile, complex investigations in the news, including, for example, the internal and criminal investigations of alleged bribery at FIFA, alleged child-endangerment at the Arch Diocese of Minneapolis and St. Paul, insider trading on Wall Street, and the alleged recruitment of teenagers to join ISIS.
