Oates, Kathleen M.
MetadataShow full item record
I limited the scope of my research to the changes that had occurred in crimina1 procedure since 1953 and focused in on one specific question: Why did the Supreme Court's philosophy toward criminal defendants change with the retirement of Earl Warren and the subsequent appointment of Warren Burger as Chief Justice? In this thesis, I will explore three areas during the course of my research: the social and political backgrounds of the justices serving on the Court since 1953, criminal procedure cases that have been decided by the Warren and Burger Courts, end the domestic situation in the U.S. at the time these opinions were being made.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
