Select Problems in Criminal Law: Policing Seminar - LAW 624

2 Hours

This course examines how the law regulates policing in the United States. We will spend part of the class exploring important court decisions that have attempted to limit police wrongdoing. This course will also expose students to how other legal arrangements, like civil litigation and federal oversight, strive to limit law enforcement misconduct. This course will encourage students to think critically about how effectively our current array of legal regulations operate to combat police misconduct in the United States, and whether these regulations impair the ability of law enforcement to fight crime.
