Criminal Procedure: Investigation

Elective Course
Course Number: LAW 511
Credits: 3

In this course, we look at the intersection of constitutional law and criminal law.  This class focuses on police investigation of criminal activity and explores the limits and restrictions that the Constitution imposes on the police.  With a real world emphasis on how to secure the introduction or exclusion of evidence, we examine the protections provided criminal suspects by the 4th, 5th, and 6th Amendments.   We also compare the rights guaranteed in the US Constitution with those guaranteed in Montana Constitution, particularly Article II, Sections 10 and 11.
