The course will examine criminal investigations and the constitutional law relating to police officers and lawyers. Topics include the role of prosecution and defense counsel, search and seizure, police interrogation, the exclusionary rule, grand juries, eyewitness identifications, and the assistance of counsel. In addition to doctrine, we will regularly discuss public policy and lawyering strategies.
Students will be expected to attend class and participate in discussions throughout the semester. Students will be "on call" approximately every third week, and will be excused from "on call" obligations only if they notify the instructor in advance about a conflict, unavailability, or a circumstance that makes it unreasonable to expect them to participate. Students will be expected to make up any of these excused on-call obligations.
Just like the big, big, big quiz held every July, there will be an in-class, closed book final exam.
There will also be 2 open-book on-line quizzes during the semester.
