CJ 220 - Criminal Law and Procedure


Students  learn how to analyze criminal statutes and judicial decisions, and apply them to the facts of a given case. Next, students review key crimes, including their elements and possible defenses (known as substantive criminal law), and the rules the government must follow when it seeks to enforce the law, including protections contained in the Bill of Rights (known as criminal procedure). Finally, students learn how a typical case moves through the justice system, beginning with an arrest and ending with a trial and any appeal.    

Credits: 3
