Examination of the powers of law enforcement and how they relate to the rights conferred upon suspects and defendants by the U.S. Constitution.
A key goal is to educate students about the rules that govern the various players in the criminal justice system and the rights that individuals have when they confront that system. Among the subjects examined are: the authority conferred upon police to stop, arrest, and search – and limits on that authority; the role of the privilege against self-incrimination and confessions in an adversary system; the roles and responsibilities of prosecutors and defense counsel in the system; and the respective roles of judge and jury.
