This course is organized into ten Parts, each of which is divided into several Units (1.1, 1.2, etc.).
There is one book assigned for this class:
Casebook (CB): Joshua Dressler and George C. Thomas, Criminal Procedure: Principles, Policies, and Perspectives (6th ed., 2017).
Readings in the casebook ("CB") are required. Additional information is provided in the syllabus.
This section will contain important, official class announcements. Students are responsible for checking this page.
[2018-01-15]:FINAL EXAM: HUGS will be administering accommodations for students who have conflicts with the final exam schedule. Please contact HUGS staff for details.
[2018-01-14]:Students should bring their textbooks to all classes for the rest of the semester.
[2018-01-12]:The syllabus has been updated to reflect our progress-to-date. (Later topics we will not reach have not yet been removed.)
There will not be sufficient time in a three-unit course to cover all the topics of both "investigative" and "adjudicative" criminal procedure. We will focus on the investigative portion, and one day will be dedicated at the end of the course to a brief overview of topics we are otherwise not able to cover.
