I am a law student that excelled in criminal law, evidence, and trial procedure. I also am a true crime enthusiast and spend a lot of time reading articles and watching documentaries on interesting cases. This class aims to link the study of legal theory with true crime.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Each class will discuss a murder. In conjunction with that, we will inevitably discuss the cause of death and circumstances surrounding the murder, such as: wounds, weapons, and manner of death. We do not look at real corpses or real blood. Outlines are used to represent the victims. By taking this class, students are expected to understand that murders occur and that foul play may be involved. The bulk of the class is spent interviewing witnesses or interrogating suspects. The time we spend focusing on the act of the murder itself is relatively short.
