This seminar is geared toward students interested in reading and discussing legal scholarship on issues related to criminal justice and will be especially useful to students interested in pursuing careers in legal academia in the broad field(s) of criminal justice. Weekly seminars will alternate between discussion based on assigned readings and workshops in which criminal justice scholars of varying methodologies will be invited by the professors to present their work to the seminar for discussion (and other members of the community will be invited to attend, as well). Students will be expected to write short weekly response papers and to do at least one short oral presentation. There is no exam for this course. Enrollment by written application to the professors; limited to 20. JD and LLM applicants should submit a short (not more than a page) statement of interest to Professor Steiker's assistant, Amanda Cegielski, at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, November 9, 2012.
