(3 credits)
Prerequisite: CRJU 201 and CRJU 202
This course examines the nature, purpose and historical development of criminal law and criminal procedure. Criminal liability and responsibility, parties to crimes, elements of various crimes, and defenses to criminal accusations are studied. The course will also examine how constitutional issues relating to arrest, search and seizure, and self-incrimination define standards of liberty. In addition, this course focuses on the ideological changes that manifest in court opinion, the implicit, or at times explicit, relationship between politics, partisanship and court behavior. (CWRT)
