Advanced Criminal Procedure – 6842
This is a seminar in advanced criminal procedure. The course will allow students to consider more deliberatively some of the issues covered in the basic criminal procedure course and to experience the practical realities of practicing in the field of criminal law. By participating in mock pretrial hearings each week, we will explore a number of issues that typically arise during the course of a criminal prosecution. Course requirements include three written papers: two memoranda of law, (5 pages each) and one report and recommendation (15-20 pages), and participation in three classroom simulations of evidentiary hearings.
