In this course, Ms. Middleton goes through the scope of the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights.  The Fifth Amendment reads as follows:

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

The Amendment can be broken down into several sections for purposes of analysis.  

A. Introduction
B. The Grand Jury Clause of the Fifth Amendment
C. The Double Jeopardy Clause of the Fifth Amendment
D. The Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment
E. The Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment
F. The Privilege against Self-Incrimination under the Fifth Amendment
