LAW 675 - Criminal Procedure - Investigation
The primary focus of this course is a detailed analysis of the investigatory stage of a criminal prosecution. A careful examination is undertaken of the contours of the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments as they relate to searches and seizures, the eliciting of confessions, and identification procedures. Specific attention is paid to the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, the Criminal Procedure Law of the State of New York, and the decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court. The Spring 2014 section taught by Professor Gershman will be offered in a 50% synchronous distance format. See course description below: The Spring 2014 section of Criminal Procedure - Investigation will be taught by Professor Gershman in a format that includes a significant distance-learning component. For the first 6 ½ weeks of the semester, the class will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 p.m. to 3:50 p.m. in the traditional classroom setting. For the last 6 ½ weeks of the semester, the class will not meet in the traditional classroom setting. Instead, the professor and students will conduct class online in real time. The course coverage for this section will be the same as if it met only in the traditional classroom setting. PLEASE TAKE INTO ACCOUNT WHETHER THE DISTANCE FORMAT WILL WORK WELL FOR YOUR LEARNING STYLE IN DECIDING WHETHER TO ENROLL IN THIS SECTION. Sections of the course will be taught in a traditional format in future semesters. Students must have completed 28 hours of J.D. coursework prior to enrolling in this section. Ordinarily, those part-time students who have not completed the equivalent of one full-time academic year at the law school will not be eligible to enroll in this section. ABA Standard 306 permits students to award up to 12 distance education credits (but no more than 4 credits per semester) toward the J.D. degree. For purposes of the ABA Standards, this course will count as 2 traditional classroom credits and 2 distance education credits. For students interested in taking the New York Bar Exam, this course, because it is a “synchronous” distance course, will be counted as a traditional lecture course under the New York Court of Appeals rules, rather than as a distance course. It should have no impact on how your credits will be counted for purposes of New York Bar eligibility. If you have taken distance courses at the Law School previously, or if you have any questions about registering for this course, please contact the Registrar’s office or Dean Anderson. 4.000 Credit Hours 2.000 Lecture Hours (ABA) 2.000 Distance-Education Hours (ABA) 4.000 Lecture Hours (NY Court of Appeals)
