Criminal Justice Policy

Law 434



Rigorous Writing Experience (RWE)



This seminar will focus on legal policy issues related to self defense in the criminal law.  Particular attention will be paid to self defense cases involving the use of lethal force, specifically the use of firearms.  Specific topics will depend on class interest, but the initial phase of course will focus on case studies of controversial shootings where self defense was raised as a defense.
