This is a basic criminal procedure course, dealing mainly with the various constitutional rules governing police conduct prior to the institution of formal court proceedings. The major focus is on the federal constitutional rights and restrictions imposed by the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments. Searches and seizures, police interrogation, identification procedures and the exclusion of evidence obtained in violation of these provisions account for a substantial portion of the course. Some additional matters are covered, including some aspects of the formal court-connected proceedings and the basic principles of habeas corpus.
