News Articles: Criminal Justice incidents or issues occur or are highlighted almost daily within the news media. Students will be required to research news articles that are relevant with the topic of study in our criminal law class. (I have included the topics of study below). The student will submit a copy of the news article along with a review of the article. The review is not a summary of the article but is a review of the article and explanation of its relevance concerning criminal law. The review must be at least 500 words in length, contain correct grammar, and double spaced.
Topics may include one of the following: Drug abuse, Drug laws in the United States, Delivery of controlled substances, state-federal clash over the use of medical marijuana, Criminal liability for drug induced deaths, possession or sale of drug paraphernalia, Alcohol-related crimes, Drunk Driving,
