OVERVIEW

The Course in Comparative and International Criminal Procedural Law is concerned with the study of the main features of different procedural models, criminal procedure in the U.S. system and international criminal justice. The first part will be devoted to the physiognomy of U.S. criminal procedure and the role played within it by "negotiated justice."
