CRIJ 4394. Constitutional Issues In Law Enforcement. 3 Hours.

Students focus on the intersection of the U.S. Constitution and the criminal justice system. Laws that govern policing are primarily based upon the United States Constitution, United States Supreme Court decisions, and statutes passed by the United States Congress and state legislatures. Major decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court serve as the core resource, including those addressing Fourth, Eighth, and Fourteenth Amendment governmental authority issues. Although a focus is placed on these resources, the material is presented in a format and in a language designed to meet the needs and interests of non-lawyers, while preserving the meaning and content of the law as interpreted by the courts. Emphasis is placed on development of analytical reasoning skills through the case study method.
