Copyright Law (Clinton)   SL# 76682 LAW-646 001

The books for Copyright Law are Alfred C. Yen and Joseph P. Liu, Copyright Law: Essential Cases and Materials (2d ed. West) and either the Statutory Supplement to the casebook. The instructor has also made available in the Course Documents section of the course Blackboard site, a complete copy of the Copyright Act of 1976, as amended through December, 2011, derived from the Copyright Office website which can be used in place of the Supplement. The casebook may be supplemented with cases posted in the same area as needed. All reading assignments are posted in the Assignment Calendar and are aspirational. All students should carefully review, dissect, and analyze any and all statutory provisions cited in the casebook or any of the assigned cases. While separate assignments are not being made to specific statutory provisions, all students should undertake the responsibility to review the applicable statutes as they read the cases, just as any diligent practitioner would do. The assignment for the first day of class is to read the Syllabus on the Course Documents section of the Blackboard site and pages 1-14 of the Yen & Liu casebook.

After the Syllabus and assignment sheet were prepared, a new nutshell-type book on copyright law came across my desk which I recommend (but do not require) as supplemental reading for the course. The book is Jane C. Ginsburg and Robert A. Gorman, Copyright Law (Foundation Press 2012), which is part of the Foundation Press Concepts and Insights Series. Since the book was published too late for this purpose, no order for it was placed with the bookstores. A link to Amazon's page for the book is available in the announcements section of the course Blackboard site.

Critical Race Theory (Tsosie)   SL# 88281 LAW-725 001

Assignment for August 27 also posted under Assignments)Topic: Introduction to Critical Race Theory Readings: See Blackboard for handout links. Perea, Delgado casebook (2d ed. 2007): pp. 1-4; 1259-69 Handout #1: Brown, Critical Race Theory, pp. 1-12 Crenshaw, Critical Race Theory: The Key Writings that Formed the Movement, Introduction, pp. xiii-xxxii. Assignment: Please read the above materials prior to class. During class, we will set up the framework for Critical Race Theory (Brown), explore the history of intellectual thought behind CRT (Crenshaw), and discuss the experiential nature of CRT (Montoya’s essay in Perea, Delgado). To participate in the experiential exercise, please write a short essay (1-3 pages) that tells a story that you have experienced about race during your education. The point of this assignment is to assess whether race is relevant in the educational institutions of our society. To get started, you might want to think about the following questions: (1 (1) Has the issue of race ever come up for you in your educational experience (including law school, undergraduate, high school, or elementary school)? This can be a situation that was personal to you, something that you observed (for example, a speaker and the audience reaction to the speaker or conduct that you witnessed toward another student), or a policy issue that was being implemented (i.e. affirmative action in admissions). (2 (2) Please identify the issue and describe your reaction to the experience. Did it change anything about the way that you thought or behaved up until then? Note: If you have never had a personal experience with the concept of race during your educational process, please offer your reactions to the broader question of whether you believe that “race” is a viable concept within contemporary society, and if so, whether you believe that race is relevant in the educational institutions of our society. All students will turn in the short essay after class. This is not a research project and you will receive full points just for thinking and writing about your experience or perspectives.

Debtor/Creditor & Bankruptcy Law (Haines)   SL# 72243 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 January 2012 Edition of the Annotated Mini-Code Mini-Rules, Western Circuits Edition (2012) 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. class, and you should bring it to class on that day and every day thereafter.

For the first class on Thursday August 23, 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 (or use both).

Federal Indian Law I (Tsosie)   SL# 72236 LAW-632 001

The first class explores various political models of tribal-federal relations, offering a contemporary example (the Cherokee Freedmen case) and starting our study of the foundational cases in Federal Indian Law that came to define the status of “ domestic dependent nation.” Please read the recent news article from the Tulsa World “Department of Interior makes counterclaim in lawsuit over Cherokee Nation freedmen descendants” Link to news article: http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/article.aspx?subjectid=11&articleid=20120703_11_A9_ULNSbr851617 Also read pages 1-12 and 44-61 of Casebook.

Ideas of the First Amendment (Winer)   SL# 72266 LAW-791 014

The Text for the class is, appropriately enough, IDEAS OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT by Vincent Blasi (Thomson-West 2nd ed. 2012). For the first class, read in this text the Preface (pp. v -vii) 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. I will be available as soon as the semester begins for discussions with students on possible paper topics – just contact me by email to schedule a meeting.

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.

Readings:

•What are the different ways of studying it?

In doing the readings, think about the following questions:
•What do you consider to be the most serious sustainability problems in the world today? Why do you think these problems are particularly serious?
•What criteria of seriousness are you using?
•What makes a sustainability problem "international" in nature? When are international measures necessary or appropriate?
•For each of the problems you identified above, what is the nature of the “problem”? What prevents a solution from being reached?
•What role can international law play in solving sustainability problems? Why might states agree to international solutions?

Introduction to Law & Economics (Depianto)   SL# 88327 LAW-739 001

Hello and welcome to law and economics. I'm excited to meet you all Monday. Until then, here's the first set of readings: Chapters 1 and 2 of the Cooter and Ulen Text, pp. 1-14, 18-26 (Section IV), 33-37 (Section VII), 38-43 (IXa-IXc). For those familiar with economics, much of this will be review; for those who aren't as familiar, I understand that there are a lot of new concepts contained in the reading. During the first day of class, I will dedicate as much time as we need to review (and, if necessary, we can use the following class to continue). I will also make clear which concepts are most important. And – for people who recoil at the mere sight of numbers and graphs (“I came to law school to avoid math!”) – rest assured that the quantitative aspects of this class will be very accessible.
