CJ 1580 - Ethics in Criminal Justice


What are ethics and how do they affect the administration of our criminal justice system? This survey will introduce students to ethical theory and how it impacts the rule of law. Employing ethical theory, we will test the foundation of the criminal justice system and explore the impact of lying and deception; racial prejudice and discrimination; the abuse of authority; and the ethics of those who work in the criminal justice system.
