LAW 209 - Advanced Criminal Procedure Seminar.


The seminar’s mission is to build off of the principles and rules covered in Constitutional Criminal Procedure or Criminal Procedure-Investigation by identifying and discussing constitutional criminal procedure issues which are still in their formative stages. Often, issues which eventually become landmark Supreme Court decisions percolate in the lower courts for a number of years—the equal protection claim, for example, that eventually became the landmark decision of Batson v. Kentucky was floating around the state and lower federal courts for a decade before the Court granted certiorari. Our exploration of such issues (and any Supreme Court decisions handed down during the semester) will be done through the Criminal Law Reporter, a weekly loose-leaf that tracks criminal law and procedure decisions throughout the country.  Pre- or co-requisite: Criminal Procedure Adjudication or permission of the instructor. Two hours. Shapiro Not offered in 2020-2021.
