This course is about how a criminal case advances through the court system. It covers charging decisions and grand jury; bail; right to counsel; right to jury; plea bargaining; discovery; pre-trial, trial, and post-trial proceedings; double jeopardy; sentencing; habeas corpus; and appellate standards of review. We will concentrate primarily on federal law, with some coverage of state procedure.

This class will be taught from a practitioner's vantage. To that end, we will spend substantial class time discussing practical application, including a mandatory but ungraded motion assignment.

Note: Criminal Procedure-Investigations and Evidence are not prerequisites, and cover substantially different material.

Also note: If you are taking Criminal Procedure primarily for bar exam purposes, and have to choose between taking Investigations or Adjudication, I would strongly suggest taking Investigations instead.

Requirements Satisfaction:
