Criminal Procedure and the Constitution will explore the interface between the criminal justice system and the United States Constitution. The course will introduce students to constitutional analysis by examining the provisions of the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments as they apply to police investigations and interrogation, as well as the circumstances under which indigent defendants are guaranteed the assistance of counsel. Topics will include search and seizure law, pre-trial identification procedures, the exclusionary rule, and the permissible parameters of police conduct and defendant rights.
