This course examines the constraints placed on criminal investigation and law enforcement by the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution. Topics include searches and seizures, police interrogations, grand juries, identification procedures, and the role of prosecution and defense counsel.

This course is the first half of a two-part series. The second half is Criminal Procedure: Adjudication, which will be offered by the same instructor in Spring 2014, and which will cover criminal trials, pre-trial and post-trial proceedings, and plea bargaining. The two courses will be structured as an integrated sequence, but neither course is a pre-requisite for the other, and students may take either or both. (Students may also take Criminal Procedure: Investigations and Criminal Procedure: Adjudication concurrently in Spring 2014.)
