Seminar In Law/Justice (Writing Intensive)

This seminar will cover topics relating to how law and justice are put into practice by the police, courts, and corrections system. Important issues affecting society and the criminal justice system as a whole will be examined in depth. Students will be expected to read scholarly work exploring these issues; participate in class discussions; conduct library research; write short, informal memos and a senior level research paper; present oral reports on their research; and demonstrate their understanding of assigned readings and the research reported by classmates in a final examination.
