Description

This course explores the constitutional rules that govern the range of actions taken by government officials (primarily law enforcement officers) in the course of investigating criminal activity. We will critically examine the way that courts regulate invasive actions "such as frisks, searches, detentions, arrests, interrogations, and uses of force? through the use of balancing tests that weigh the social benefits of crime prevention and criminal apprehension against the costs of individual liberty and privacy.
