| Legal Aspects of Criminal Justice II
P371 | 1417 | McGillivray
The course is designed to give a broad overview of the procedures and
interests which govern the legal aspects of the criminal justice system.
The focus will be on police investigation techniques, the right to counsel,
the right against self-incrimination, the law of search and seizure, and
due process in the context of criminal proceedings. The goal is not to
learn any particular area in detail but rather to gain a working
understanding for criminal procedure in its entirety.
