Oregon Criminal Law: Arrest to Sentence

Students will learn the practical and legal reality of criminal law in Oregon by working through a hypothetical case from arrest to sentencing. Like a real case, students will learn more about the case each week. Each week will force students to address new issues in the case and Oregon law. Students will be assigned a role to play each week (either prosecution or defense). The hypothetical case will highlight differences in Oregon law as compared to federal law. Students will also explore common ethical issues that arise in the practice of criminal law in Oregon.
