Tulane Law School

Tulane Law School strives to create opportunities that enhance our students' practical skillsets in order to better prepare them for their jobs following law school. Through partnerships with local legal professionals, alumni, employers and law school faculty, Tulane Law works to supplement the classroom experience with programs such as Intersession "Boot Camp", externships, judicial clerkships and pro bono opportunities.

Criminal Practice, Advanced

Course Description
This course explores the various stages of the criminal justice process, e.g. arrest, first appearance, bail hearing, charging process (district attorney grand jury), arraignment, pre-trial discovery, plea negotiations, and post-trial motions. The course will be taught partly by lecture, partly by class discussion of hypothetical fact situations, and class discussion of leading cases as to each topic. The format differs from some classes in that the students evaluate the hypothetical fact situations first, and only thereafter read the applicable case law to see how it reinforces or changes their original opinions. The class is limited to 20 students and preference is given to seniors and those students who are not in the criminal law clinic. (2 credits)
