Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This course is intended to provide a supplement to students who have already taken at least one criminal procedure course and have an interest in realistically exploring how the criminal justice system operates. Each week we will examine a particular issue or actor in the criminal justice system and use cases, reports, and scholarship to explore the ways in which the law works in practice. In doing so, students will be provided with additional examination of legal issues which time does not allow to be addressed in a traditional doctrinal class. The course will also have a practical aspect. In the past, there have been guest speakers who discuss their lives in practice. In addition, at several points in the course students will be asked to briefly role-play being a prosecutor or defense attorney. The goal of the course is to provide not only substantive knowledge of how individuals charged with carrying out the criminal law actually do it, but also to present a larger view of how the system (which includes not just lawyers and judges but also police officers, court personnel and juries) as a whole, functions.
