  • Advanced Criminal Procedure Seminar


    Credits: 2

    In this class, students will explore more deliberatively some of the issues covered in the basic Criminal Procedure course, as well as brainstorm possible solutions to vexing or new issues that typically arise during the course of a criminal prosecution that are too unwieldy for practitioners' exploration and too unfamiliar for scholars. Examples of such issues include (but are not limited to) the following: protecting Fourth Amendment privacy while promoting electronic toll collection systems; non-governmental police and bodyguards' cooperation with or rebuffing of governmental police departments; the effects of "reality" shows on Fourth Amendment expectations of privacy; voluntariness and consent, post-9/11; conflict in Fourth Amendment policing and Fourteenth Amendment parenting.
