Applied Criminal Justice

About this Course

This course will explore the use of criminal legal systems to address social and environmental harms. Following an introductory section covering the basics of criminal law and procedure, the course will explore conventional and alternative criminal justice applications to address crimes against people including drug and internet offenses, animal abuse, and environmental harms. The course will also explore new arenas in which criminal law might be used to advance social justice. This 3-credit course will build on and expand upon the existing 2 credit Advanced Criminal Law Seminar.  Students will design a proposal related to a new application of criminal law and submit a graded paper and presentation in support of their proposal.
