Identifications in Criminal Cases: Law and Practice

This lesson examines identification procedures in criminal cases through a short exploration of problems that can arise in making an identification, a primer on basic constitutional rules and the problem of suggestiveness, and a simple criminal case in which you act as an investigator and see the legal consequences of choosing different identification procedures. A concluding essay question gives you a chance to test your knowledge.
