LAW 227 - Comparative Criminal Justice Seminar.


This course will survey the systems of criminal justice from a comparative perspective, examining the history and jurisprudence of the major legal traditions and the policies and practices adopted in representative nations. In particular, it will consider how different traditions and nations approach the various stages in the criminal process, including: crime definition, policing and investigation, pre-trial procedures, determination of guilt, and sentencing. The aim of the course is to facilitate a deeper understanding of the diverse systems of crime and punishment around the world, which, in turn, allows critical reflection about American criminal justice.Two hours.LunaWill not be offered in 2012-2013.
