Course Description:

Special attention will be paid to how the Supreme Court has attempted to resolve the tension between individual rights and crime control needs in its decisions regulating the following law enforcement practices: investigative detention, arrest, police interrogation, searches and seizures, and eyewitness identification. The rights to counsel and to a jury may also be covered.
