This class was tough.
Criminal Due Process was one of the most challenging, yet interesting courses I had taken in my undergraduate career at Northeastern. Students will learn the ins-and-outs of criminal procedure, drawing in landmark court cases and learning the history of the criminal justice process.
This is not an attention-grabbing course for those who are not serious about Criminal Justice studies. If this is not a burning passion for you, this course will be very dry. However, if you plan to pursue a career in law enforcement or criminal litigation, this is a must-take. You will be challenged to learn the Miranda Rights, how they are applied, and the procedures acceptable/unacceptable to the apprehension and handling of a suspect.

Advice for students:
As previously stated, if you do not need this course for your major, and if you are not interested in criminal justice, do not take this course. This is a career-specific course. Do all the reading, highlight, make study guides, etc. This course is extremely heavy on memorization of minutia.
