SOC 314 - Criminal Law and Procedure (3)

Prerequisite: SOC 109  or LPS 101 .
 This course will examine the socially constructed nature of legal proceedings with the help of real life court cases.  The US legal system often provides a path for justice and reconciliation, yet this formal institution is not impervious to human sentiment and error. Students will leave this course with a more nuanced interpretation of the phrase, “Innocent until proven guilty.”
