Learn Criminal Law, Procedure or Evidence in a Convenient Format, Earn an A!

Every student who attended and/or participated in the hybrid and online versions of Professor Higgins Hybrid 225, 227 or Online 230 courses has earned an A.  More importantly, these students have earned knowledge of and an ability to understand and apply the law that most affects their daily professional lives. Said one veteran Sheriff's Deputy who has taken 227 and 230 courses with Professor Higgins: "Just wanted to say thank you for another great semester. I really enjoy your classes and you make learning fun for me. Especially since it's hard for me to have the patience for school again."

Whether it is the Hybrid CRJ 225 and 227 where you get the best of both worlds, meeting with Professor Higgins once a week and then doing some work at your leisure outside of the classroom, or the completely online CRJ 230 course, you can't beat the convenience and the opportunity to really learn Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure or Evidence.  Read the full descriptions for these courses below and see your advisor and do what you need to do to ENROLL today while seats are still available. 

CRJ 225: CRIMINAL LAW – Hybrid (Class Number 2513)
This course serves as an Introduction to Criminal Law and is a great course for students seeking a career in Criminal Justice or as a Paralegal or even eventually as a Lawyer.  The course is concerned with the components, purposes and functions of criminal law. Included in this course is a study of criminal liability, including the elements of various offenses and the rules of evidence.  As a hybrid this course offers the best of both worlds, you meet one class period per week with the instructor and the course material for that week is discussed during the class period.  You then have the flexibility to complete one online discussion forum per week outside of class and you have a short online quiz to be completed each week prior to the next class meeting.  There is no final exam for this course.  Students who have completed this course have appreciated that the work load is spread out, that they can see and ask the instructor any questions and have a chance to discuss course material as a group but that they then have the freedom to complete the one weekly assignment and the weekly quiz outside of class at a time they choose to do so.  Students have noted an appreciation for the consistency, organization and flexibility of this course.
CRJ 227: ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE - Hybrid (Class Number 2767)
This course serves as our Constitutional Law course and it is a great option for students seeking a career in Criminal Justice or as a Paralegal or even eventually as a Lawyer.  This course is designed to acquaint the student with the legal principles applicable to important criminal procedures that involve force, arrest, search and seizure, civil rights, self-incrimination, assistance of counsel and other aspects of Constitutional Law affecting law enforcement officers.  Most students who have completed this course have had CRJ 110 or Prlgl 110, many have had CRJ 225 prior to completing this course.  As a hybrid this course offers the best of both worlds, you meet one class period per week with the instructor and the course material for that week is discussed during the class period.  You then have the flexibility to complete one online discussion forum per week outside of class. For this course there are no quizzes or exams.  We focus on the discussions in class and in the weekly discussion forum online.  The material available for discussion is relevant, interesting and students who have completed this course have appreciated that the work load is spread out, that they can see and ask the instructor any questions and have a chance to discuss course material as a group but that they then have the freedom to complete the one weekly assignment and participate in discussions of things people in these career fields deal with daily.  Students have noted an appreciation for the consistency, organization and flexibility of this course.
CRJ 230: COURT PROCEDURES AND EVIDENCE – Online (Class Number 2406)
We tend to refer to this course as simply EVIDENCE and whether you intend to be employed in a Criminal Justice career, as a Paralegal or eventually as a Lawyer, this course is one of the most beneficial courses you can complete for all areas of the law.  This course is designed to acquaint the student with the kinds of evidence and the rules governing the admissibility of evidence in court, including the effect of court decisions on the acquisition and admissibility of evidence, and while we focus on the criminal procedural steps from arrest through conviction, the rules apply just as well to Civil actions.  Most students who have completed this course have had CRJ 110 or Prlgl 110, many have had CRJ 225 or other Prlgl courses prior to completing this course.  As a completely online course, this course offers the ultimate opportunity in flexibility as long as you are disciplined enough to meet the well defined deadlines.  The course content is so interesting that students are more likely to go far beyond the minimum expectations for the course.  There is one online discussion forum per week.  There are no quizzes or exams.  Students have noted an appreciation for the consistency, organization and flexibility of this course, most referring to this course  as being right up there with the CRJ 227 course as their favorite CRJ or Prlgl courses outside of the CRJ or Prlgl Internship course.
