LAW 7026 - Problems in Criminal Justice


2 to 3 Credit Hours

Requirements: Paper and in-class presentation required.
Description
This is an elective course. In this seminar, we will study a variety of pressing problems that currently inhibit or undermine the criminal justice system’s ability to deliver on its promise to do what its name implies: to provide “justice” to those affected by it. Among the issues we will look at are how race affects the administration of criminal law and criminal law enforcement, the underfunding of criminal defense, and the phenomena of mass incarceration. Additional course topics (on comparable themes) will be selected by course participants based on student interest.
