Course Attribute

gharris (Thu, 29 Oct 2015 01:15:45 GMT): Rollback: Two issues to be resolved: (1) 0-12 under 'Number of Credits' means that the course might be offered for anywhere between 0 and 12 credits in any given semester. Is that correct? (2) The title suggests that this course is a generic topics course, but the course description and prerequisites, as well as the syllabus, suggest that it's specifically about psychology and the law. Is it a 'topics' course and this subject is a one-time or occasional offering (in which case it should not have prerequisites in the bulletin) or should it be retitled 'Forensic Psychology and the Law'?
