MCJ 6120 - Ethical Leadership and Accountability in Criminal Justice


The purpose of this course is to explore the presence of authority, power, force, and discretion in each of the sub-system of the criminal justice system. Administration actions and ethical issues permeate the criminal justice system. We will analyze the importance of ethical leadership, as well as the tension between deontological ethical systems and teleological or “means-end” ethical analysis. Discussions may include police corruption, prosecutorial misconduct, ethical issues in sentencing, prison corruption, and ethics in the creation and implementation of crime control policy.
