$21.00

Students will write an essay comparing and contrasting the approaches to criminal procedure by the U.S. Supreme Court under both Chief Justices Earl Warren and William Rehnquist. Just as the Warren court had sought to define the protections of fundamental rights, so did William Rehnquist. Rehnquist courts have also issued landmark decisions that have shaped our democracy.

The essay should focus on their significant decisions and the effects they had on the balance between social order maintenance and individual liberties.

The essay should address the effects of the Supreme Court’s decisions on law enforcement in the United States. Discuss the Supreme Court’s current approach to balancing civil liberties against public order maintenance.
Caution: Do not get sidetracked by the landmark court decisions that do not reflect criminal procedure. Brown v. the Board of Education and Roe V. Wade are cases of monumental importance, but they are not criminal procedure decisions.

A cover page
An introduction
6 to 8 typewritten double spaced pages about 2000 words on the above subject
A reference page
A reference page containing a minimum of six external course sources
The essay must be written in APA or MLA style
