Welcome to Lawshelf’s video-course on searches and seizures. This fundamental criminal procedure course looks at the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable searches and seizures and its warrant requirement. This is an introductory level course and no prior experience or knowledge is necessary to participate.

The course stars with discussion of the fundamentals of the Fourth Amendment, such as when its protections apply and what is considered a search or seizure. We’ll look at landmark cases such as Katz v. United States, Mapp v. Ohio and Justice Brandeis’ famous dissent in Olmstead v. United States and the effects of these cases in weaving a tapestry of rules that protect our rights to privacy.
