Due process under the Amendments to the U.S. Constitution can be categorized into two main types: substantive due process and procedural due process. Both are rooted in the principle of fundamental fairness. For instance, the Fourth Amendment safeguards citizens against unreasonable searches and seizures of personal property by the government. Meanwhile, the Fifth and Sixth Amendments ensure that appropriate procedures are followed by the courts and law enforcement to guarantee fair treatment of individuals accused of crimes.


Analyze the U.S. Supreme Court cases:

  • Byrd v. United States.
  • Chavez v. Martinez.

Write a 3–4 page paper addressing the following:

  • Explain the substantive and procedural protections provided by the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments for defendants facing criminal charges today.
  • Define due process and illustrate how the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments align with the requirements of due process.
  • Draft a one-page brief of Byrd v. United States elucidating how the privacy test and Fourth Amendment search and seizure criteria are upheld in the case.
