Criminal law, long the stepchild of the law school and the lawyer, is showing signs of a return to acceptability. Once law school freshmen dozed through this required course while freshmen law teachers, compelled by their lack of seniority to teach it, droned through their notes. Now bright-eyed young men and women, stimulated and directed by creative and provocative lecturers, debate the concepts of culpability, capacity, competence, equal justice, right to counsel, and the defendant's right to a fair trial in relation to the rights of television and the press to cover fully not only the trial itself but also the investigation which led to the trial.
