GPP: Criminal Law - Bail to Jail
About This Class
This segment of GPP is taught through the adjudication cycle of a criminal case from the bail hearing through sentencing. Classes focus on substantive law as related to the case study fact patterns presented. Students act as prosecutors and defense attorneys. Students will present two hearings, and will have two written assignments based on their case files. Most classes will also include discussions of practical ethical issues that arise in criminal cases. Students may expect to develop a solid understanding of how a typical criminal case proceeds.
Final grades are based on the two hearings, two written assignments, and class participation.
