Course Outline: Criminal Litigation Practice is designed to incorporate the substantive law of criminal procedure into a trial advocacy course. The course will cover virtually all of the stages of a criminal case—from the probable cause hearing through the sentencing hearing and hearing on a motion for a new trial. Most of the issues addressed in this course implicate federal constitutional law principles applicable to all criminal prosecutions, whether they occur in state or federal court.

Course Notes:   Whether this course will be distance education, or will have a physical room assigned, and if so the extent to which the instructor might use the room during the semester, is not determined at the time when registration initially opens for this course.  You may see contrary indications in the UH systems where you actually register for the course.  In other words, this course might be distance education with no use of a physical classroom. It might be the “HyFlex” mode in which some Law Center courses used a physical room during 2020-21. As we get closer to the start of the term/semester for this course, this course note will be updated as decisions are determined. The instructors will be involved in those decisions, but decisions about modalities may not be invariant throughout the term/semester or between now and when the course starts.
