CRJ 327 - Assessing Evidence in Criminal Justice (3)

Noting how ‘evidence’ is used and understood differently in the practice versus the study of criminal justice, this course critically examines the purpose, role, uses, sources, and credibility of evidence across both domains. After considering what evidence is and is not, the types of questions for which evidence is needed, and the complentary roles of evidence and logic in answering criminal justice questions and being a critical consumer of criminal justice claims, the course focuses on how evidence is used in the practice of criminal justice and how evidence is used in criminological research.
