ADVANCED CRIMINAL PROCEDURE is designed to prepare students in the evolving areas of criminal procedure that are heavily tested in the essay portion of the Bar exam. This upper-level course will examine recent opinions issued by the U.S. Supremes Court under the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.
Massachusetts law is often more “defendant friendly” affording greater protections than the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth amendments to the U.S. Constitution. We will compare federal law to Massachusetts law under Articles 12 and 14 of the Massachusetts Declaration of Rights and common law.
