Legal Decision Making and Leadership

CJS 6415 3 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Reviews the literature on decision making, especially in the criminal justice system, and utilizes case studies as a way to discuss how legal constraints can affect leadership. While legal procedures, rules, and guidelines must be observed, they are only one set of constraints on active leadership. Decision making in an organizational context requires knowledge of the organization’s operation, its culture, and the situations in which decisions are shaped and made individually or collectively.
