LAW 202 - Constitutional Criminal Procedure

This course studies Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendment constitutional restraints on the activities of law enforcement officers during the investigatory stage of the criminal process. Special attention will be paid to how the Supreme Court has attempted to resolve the tension between individual rights and crime control needs in its decisions regulating the following law enforcement practices: investigative detention, arrest, police interrogation, searches and seizures, and eyewitness identification. The rights to counsel and to a jury may also be covered.
