Series: Due Process: Understanding the US Criminal Justice System
For many, knowledge of the criminal justice system comes from watching television or a popular movie, but real-life situations may play out quite differently. This three-part series presents a detailed overview of the entire jurisprudence process, stressing the constitutional foundations that balance the rights of the accused with the protection of citizens. An excellent resource for political science and legal studies students, the series also gives viewers an idea of what to expect if they ever find themselves in the justice system, either as a defendant or the accused.
