Americans are fascinated with TV shows and movies involving police, lawyers, trials, and everything related thereto. Unfortunately, most have at best a very superficial knowledge of how the criminal justice system works. This course is designed as a “nuts and bolts” discussion of the criminal justice system from arrest to appeal and everything in between. Participants will learn things such as, what does a Grand Jury really do? Who are the Grand Jurors? How are they selected? Can legally seized evidence be used at trial? Who decides what charges can be brought against an individual? How is a sentence determined? The course will consist of six 1½ hour sessions presented by a lawyer with 54+ years of trial experience in the areas of prosecution, criminal defense, personal injury and civil rights litigation, and will include, from time to time, video clips and war stories. When you are done with this course, you won’t be a lawyer, but you will have a much better practical understanding as to what is happening in any given case.
