This course focuses on criminal procedure, with a particular attention to the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Fourteenth amendments to the U.S. Constitution. We will examine some of the most important and fundamental questions about government power, individual liberty, and the appropriate balance between the two. Specifically, we will study the constitutional rules and standards dealing with the investigation of crime, and, in so doing, consider how well they respond to the multiple goals of liberty, crime-control, justice and equality.
