Criminal Justice-COLL | Prosecution
P300 | 11363 | Diekhoff


This class will discuss and explore all aspects of criminal
prosecution.  Through class readings and discussions we will examine
all phases of prosecution which will include the decisions
pertaining to the filing of criminal charges, negotiated plea
agreements, and the attaining of criminal convictions.  The course
will also discuss how a prosecutorís office interacts with other
divisions of the criminal justice system such as the courts, law
enforcement and the defense bar.  This will be accomplished through
textbook reading assignments, classroom lecture, and case study.
The weekly course lectures will complement, but not duplicate the
reading.

Class meeting:  Tuesday and Thursday, 4:00-5:15

Instructor:  Mary Ellen Diekhoff, Criminal Justice Department
