Criminal Law and Administration (20061). 3 units. This course will be concerned with fundamental topics in substantive criminal law. It will be concerned with the principles underlying the definitions of crimes (the definitions, primarily, of the acts and mental states that constitute crimes); with the way in which mistakes of fact and law are treated by the criminal law; with the law governing homicide and rape; with the general doctrines concerned with attempt and accomplice liability, which are of relevance to many different crimes; and with a selection of exculpating conditions, namely, insanity, intoxication, self-defense, necessity and duress. The Model Penal Code will serve as our primary, although not exclusive, statutory text, as it does in many jurisdictions. This course is given in several sections; it must be taken before graduation. Students may satisfy the graduation requirement by satisfactorily completeting Criminal Law and Administration or Ciminal Law, but they may not enroll in both courses. Self-scheduled examination. G.
