Description

Federal Criminal Practice combines substantive federal criminal law, Federal Criminal Procedure, and the Federal Rules of Evidence, with a mock case. The course explores the basis for federal criminal jurisdiction and the investigation of federal criminal cases as well as each step of the prosecution defense of a federal criminal case. Students apply what they learn from lectures and discussion in a manner that expands their understanding and develops their practical skills. Course materials consist of a textbook and mock case materials. The mock case involves an arson of a business committed to collect insurance proceeds. Classes involve lectures, discussion, and written and oral exercises. Students write a search warrant application, an indictment, and a substantive exhibit/witness list. Students examine witnesses before the grand jury, conduct voir dire, present opening statements and closing arguments, and conduct direct and cross examination.
