What new law student courses should we offer?

Criminal Procedure II (The Courtroom/Adjudications)

The current criminal procedure lessons on the website are great for Criminal Procedure I (The Police/Investigations), but the later criminal procedure materials would be helpful to those interested in pursuing criminal law.

        The course deals with the procedural problems incurred in the adjudicatory stage of a criminal proceeding. Major areas of analysis include: arraignment and bail; an examination of the problems encountered in a preliminary hearing; the scope, extent, and goals of Grand Jury proceedings; pre-trial discovery motions and suppression hearings; and the plea bargaining process. In essence, the course attempts to follow a defendant once he enters the adjudicatory process from the point of arraignment to trial to appeal to post-conviction relief. Careful attention is paid to decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as relevant sections of the Federal and State Rules.
