Instructor(s) Berghahn, Marcus

This class will require extensive case reading. Your grade will be based on participation, including leading the class, and a series of written submissions, including a motion and a post-hearing brief.

Student Learning Outcomes:
The cases we will read and discuss cover many, but
not all, important issues arising from the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Amendments to the United States Constitution at its Wisconsin counterpart.

Students will learn to identify relevant legal issues, and understand the policy, historical and constitutional dimensions of the cases.

Students will also gain practical experience by drafting pleadings in criminal cases that raise constitutional issues, and will be provided with feedback on their written submissions.
