CJ 2500 - Correctional Law


3 cr. 3 hrs. Day course offered every other year. Also offered evenings.

Since the 1960s law has become an increasingly important accountability mechanism for corrections. Court decisions shaped the policies and practices in corrections institutions and, in some states, helped to transform prisons and jails into new organizational entities. This course seeks to help students understand how law affects the corrections environment, as well as examining current issues in corrections.

Prerequisite(s): CJ 2000
