Course Description

PPOL 180B
Criminal Justice Law & Policy: Policing, Rights, and Reform
Spring

The police play a critical role in our democracy, protecting the public and enforcing laws. But what are the limits of police authority and what rights do citizens have to be free from the government? Under what circumstances can the police use force, and what tools of enforcement are warranted? This one-weekend, one-credit course is offered as a “deep dive” into these critical criminal justice reform issues that are front and center today. The instructor, a former prosecutor & public defender, and guest speakers will prepare students to think critically about competing policy frameworks.
2017-18 One time only.
