LAW 207 - Advanced Criminal Law and Procedure Workshop.
The Workshop will bring to campus leading criminal law/procedure scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers to discuss a paper draft, a policy or a case of importance. Before the respective Workshop meeting students will receive relevant readings, such as the author’s draft paper, a judicial decision, a policy analysis, or a court brief as well as any applicable background materials. Each student will prepare a three to five page comment/memo in preparation of the Workshop meeting. The class will meet as a group before each visitor arrives to collect thoughts and ideas, possibly to work out a strategy for questioning the presenter, and to evaluate what might be most important to ascertain about the presenter’s work. The goal is to engage critically with practitioners and academics to gain broad knowledge of major issues and questions in the field. Two hours. Demleitner
