    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives the student insight on how the criminal justice system works in America. The history of the criminal justice system is interesting to learn. It is very easy to get passionate about it so I would recommend this class to open minded and passionate individuals.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that shock incarcerations were boot camps for first time young offenders. Older criminals were not given this option. I learned about entrapment, which was my favorite lesson, which was a defense that can be used for the defendant stating they were forced and harassed into committing a crime they would never commit. The defense does not deny the action of the crime but states they were forced against their will to commit a crime by a law enforcement agent.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For the students who are considering taking this course, have a open mind about the criminal justice system. There are various perspectives of justice in America's criminal justice system. Participate in class and ask a lot of questions.
