LAW 1710 - Criminal Law

This course is designed to enable the student to deal with substantive criminal law problems in both practical and policy terms. There is inquiry into the proper scope and objectives of the criminal law and exploration of the practicality of using the criminal law to achieve posited objectives. The elements of a crime are examined expositionally and critically, as are problems of criminal responsibility. The course also provides an opportunity for critical examination of statutes at an early stage in the law student’s career. Part-time students take Criminal Law and Lawmaking Institutions in their second year. Legal Writing and Research may be taken during the spring of either the first or second year for a part-time day student and must be taken during the first year summer for a part-time evening student.

Credits: 3
