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 exploring research on how the criminal justice system works. Each week the course will take a separate issue or actor in the criminal justice system and examine cases, reports, and scholarship that 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 a variety of areas students will be given actual cases and 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 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, operates.
