Due Process of Law: Crash Course Government [8:28]


Due process of law is one of the most basic, important, and often complicated issues that protects us from the government and guarantees (to some degree) fair trials.  The video discusses a variety of details about the right to due process, including double jeopardy, self-incrimination, just compensation, juries, right to an attorney, the Miranda case, and others.
