Criminal Procedure Investigation: Doctrine & Writing Skills

Law 206D






The scope and limitations of permissible law enforcement conduct in the investigation of crime, with particular focus on the constitutional limits established by the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments. Principal areas of coverage include search and seizure, police interrogation, and procedures for the identification of suspects. In the course of learning these doctrines, students will develop their brief writing skills through four 2-3 page writing assignments that will be discussed in small sections led by teaching assistants and supervised by the instructor. Individual feedback by the teaching assistants and feedback on the assignments in general by the instructor will be provided. The writing assignments will not be graded but will provide the basis for the awarding of class participation points.
