    Criminal Procedure: Charging and Adjudication (20359). 4 units. This course has also been called “Criminal Procedure II.” We shall examine the law governing prosecution and criminal trials in the United States. While I hope that some significant portion of the class will already have taken a course on Criminal Law, Criminal Investigation, Evidence, or Federal Courts, there is no prerequisite for this course. The emphasis will be on the rules and practices of the state and federal courts in the United States but we shall also consider some comparative criminal adjudicative mechanisms. Students will be expected to critically consider the proper standards and institutions for provision of defense counsel and for regulating the grand jury, formal criminal charging, pre-trial release, plea-bargaining, discovery, speedy trial, jury selection, jury trial, sentencing, direct appeal, and collateral review of convictions. Scheduled examination. K. Stith.

    Note: LLM and MSL students must have the instructor's permission to enroll in the course to ensure that they have adequate background.
