Course Description

Death Penalty Jurisprudence | L4201

The course is designed to make students aware of the substantive body of law surrounding the modern death penalty and the policy issues raised by the law. The course begins with the class constructing a fair death penalty. Students decide whether they, as the omnipotent legislature, want a death penalty. Then, students construct one that is fair, just and humane, and that achieves the goals they have established for their death penalty.
