Criminal Justice


The United States Supreme Court has had a tremendous impact on the criminal procedure practiced in
all three subcomponents of the American criminal justice system. Discuss the three most important
(landmark) Supreme Court cases that have dramatically changed how the criminal procedure is conducted in
one of the subsystems (i.e. police, courts, or corrections). Which subsystem you choose is your choice
as is the three cases, but be sure and say why you chose those cases, what was the substantial change
those cases made to that subsystem. Also, discuss whether that change was for the better or not, with
reasons for your answer.
