Criminology

Students will complete a 3-5 page research paper describing the pendulum effect in reference to crime control and due process within the criminal justice system. The student will provide examples in the form of historical landmark court cases that altered the Zeitgeist of the criminal justice system thereby shifting the focus to either crime control or due process. The student should identify the political, social, and ideological pressures that may have influenced the shift. The student will then provide their opinion on the necessity of the aforementioned dichotomy. Paper should be 3-5 pages in length not including the title, abstract, or reference page. Paper should follow APA format and be free of grammatical and spelling errors. Superior papers will be sufficiently developed and correctly cited with few or no spelling and grammatical errors.
