California Western --
Comparative and International Criminal Procedure

Chile Summer Program 2010

Each criminal procedure topic in this course is first addressed from a domestic perspective and is then explored from both an extraterritorial application perspective as well as a comparative perspective. The course covers the law of search and seizure, confessions, right to counsel, speedy trial, and extradition.

There is no text for this course.  Instead, all of the reading assignments are available online on my faculty website, which can be found at http://www.cwsl.edu.  All of the class readings can be accessed through this website.  I have also provided the citations in case you would like to access them on your own.

Your grade in this course will be based upon class participation, presentations made in class, and an exam. You are expected to complete all reading assignments prior to coming to class and actively participate in discussions and debates.
