We'll discuss the following readings during the first class meeting, which will take place Wednesday, August 24, at 1:30pm in Room 119 of the law library. Margaret T. Singer. Cults in Our Midst: The Continuing Fight Against Their Hidden Menace (Rev. ed. 2003). Chapters 1, 2, 4 and 5. Nancy Gibbs et al., Oh, My God, They’re Killing Themselves!, TIME, May 3, 1993. Andy Zipser, The Rift of Eternal Life, NEW TIMES, July 6, 1995. Mark Miller, Secrets of the Cult, NEWSWEEK, Apr. 14, 1997. Jerry Adler, Spaced Out, NEWSWEEK, Jan. 13, 2003.

Debtor/Creditor & Bankruptcy Law (Haines)   SL# 72551 LAW-653 001

The textbook is Warren & Westbrook, The Law of Debtors and Creditors (6th ed., Aspen 2009). You will also need to order the 2011 Annotated Mini-Code Mini-Rules, Western Circuits Edition (2011) from www.awhfy.com. The list price is $85 but it’s half price if you check the box that you are a law student (which is why I have you order it yourself rather than selling it through the book stores). Place your order right away but you won’t actually need the book until the Sept. 6 class, and you should bring it to class on that day and every day thereafter.

For the first class on Thursday August 18, please read Warren & Westbrook pp. 1 – 31, and do Problems 1.2 through 1.6 on pages 29-31. You will also need to review Arizona’s usury, bad check and consumer credit reporting statutes, which are posted on the Blackboard site. You should gain a general understanding of what these acts regulate but you will not be tested on their details.

This course will be taught by doing the problems rather than case law analysis, so for the classroom discussion to be understandable and useful it is essential that you actually do the assigned problems in advance of each class.

Any questions, email me at randy_haines@azb.uscourts.gov during business hours Monday through Thursday or at rhaines@wydebeam.com at other times.

Ideas of the First Amendment (Winer)   SL# 81678 LAW-791 026

The Text for the class is, appropriately enough, Ideas of the First Amendment by Vincent Blasi (Thomson-West 2006). For the first class, read in this text the Preface (pp. v -vi) and Ch. 1, Introduction, pp. 1-33. Please be prepared to discuss this material. For those who may wish to read ahead, after the first week my inclination is to SKIP Ch. 2 on Milton and go to Ch. 3 on Madison.

This is a writing seminar. As stated in the course description, each student is required to write an extended critique of one of the canonical writings (of the student’s choice) around which the course is built and apply his or her critique to a doctrinal issue or case(s). In many respects your paper is the focus of the course for you. By perusing the text you may get an early idea of a topic. While the notion is to concentrate on one of the canonical authors, as we encounter additional authors during the semester you may want to draw contrasts with another. I tend to be rather deferential and non-directive regarding what a student wishes to write about, especially if a student has a well thought out idea that he or she is passionate about. The earlier you start thinking about your paper the better.

You also may want to obtain a copy of Academic Legal Writing by Eugene Volokh (Foundation Press, 4th ed., 2010). This is a short paperback available in the bookstore, through the Internet, and on reserve in the library. See also . Begin with the material on developing a topic.

Why should the federal government, directed from Washington, be the owner and manager of over 600 million acres of land in the far west, thousands of miles away?

As long as the land remains public, for whose benefit should it be managed? For the benefit of those who live closest to the land in question? Those in the same county? The same state? All the people of the U.S.? All the people of the world? Future generations?

For an opening discussion, read pages 1038-62 in H, K, C , C & W on Admission to Practice. Consider Rule 8.4 of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct (the Rules) in Gillers, Simon, & Perlman, Regulation of Lawyers (Aspen, concise ed. 2011) ("G , S & P"), and compare DR 1-102(A) of the ABA Model Code of Professional Responsibility (the Code) in G, S & P.
