B602 Criminal Procedure: Trial

Description This course covers the procedures that govern criminal cases after the initiation of formal legal proceedings. We will learn about trials, trial-related issues (such as the charging process, discovery, jury selection, and verdicts), and plea bargaining as a substitute for trials. We will also learn about post-trial appellate and habeas corpus review of criminal cases. We will give special attention to the right to counsel, and the meaning of the phrase, #due process of law.# We will emphasize the role of the U.S. Constitution, as interpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court, in regulating criminal procedures. This course is one of three basic Bill of Rights courses offered by the law school (along with Constitutional Law II and Criminal Process: Investigation). As such, it is a fundamental part of a sound legal education, and covers topics that are frequently part of the bar exam. This course is vital for anyone contemplating a career in criminal law or a judicial clerkship. The only prerequisite is the first-year Criminal Law course. PLEASE NOTE that this course may be taken independently of Criminal Process: Investigation # neither course is a pre-requisite for the other one.
