Criminal Litigation Drafting: The Complex ProsecutionThis course will consider the special drafting challenges presented by the complex prosecution. Working with materials representing the "raw" output of agents and detectives in the wake of September 11, students will investigate a terrorism case. The course will give in-depth consideration to a range of thorny questions--legal, factual, and tactical--that frame the drafting of such critical and sensitive case-making tools as proffer and cooperation agreements, documentary search warrants, pen registers, eavesdropping applications, and multi-party enterprise indictments. Guest speakers from the prosecution and defense will discuss methods of building and attacking these indictments, privacy concerns, and how new technologies (the Web, the internet, and wireless communications) have revolutionized the business of policing in a free society.
Additional information: Criminal Litigation Drafting: Basic Principles is not a pre-requisite; this course is simply more specialized in its focus than the "Basic Principles" course.
