Potential offenses include monopolization, collusion and other agreements (including mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures) in restraint of trade. In recent years, the antitrust laws have become particularly important in industries involving network technologies and/or the extensive use of intellectual property. Antitrust concepts also lay at the heart of most forms of licensing and/or capacity regulation by federal agencies such as the FCC, FERC, DOT, etc. The class will conclude with a single, in-class final examination.

Under the so-called “American Rule,” parties to litigation must pay their own attorneys’ fees and costs. That Rule, however, is subject to a host of fee-shifting exceptions that allow a prevailing party to recover its attorneys’ fees from the losing party. In addition, courts may sometimes award a party all or a portion of its attorneys’ fees as a sanction to redress its opponent’s improper litigation tactics. This course examines, among other subjects:

• Contingent fee arrangements;
• Statutory and other grounds for attorneys’ fee awards to the prevailing party;
• Procedures for seeking the recovery of attorneys’ fees and costs; and
• Fee and cost sanctions under Rule 11 (and other Rules).

Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 006
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Marchant;McCarville;Suzuki

Course Description:
Blockchain and cryptocurrencies are rapidly evolving technologies that are already disrupting the practice and substance of law. The first blockchain, Bitcoin, has become an international sensation as it value skyrockets and plummets. But Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are just one small corner of blockchain applications – it is also being applied to supply chain management, financial and banking functions, stocks and bonds, property and land deed ownership, wills and estates, health data, and eventually even government functions such as taxation and voting. It is also changing the practice of law, as some new law firms exist wholly on the blockchain, employing a radically different business model for law. This course will familiarize students with the technology behind blockchain, and explore the legal and policy applications and implications of blockchains and cryptocurrencies.

Business Organizations

SLN #: 87436
Course Prefix: LAW-654
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Forst

Course Description:
This course describes how the laws governing business organizations impact the work of all lawyers. A basic understanding of the organization and management of business enterprises, and the law of agency, partnership, limited liability companies, corporations, and securities, is routinely needed across a diverse range of legal specializations.

Business enterprises can be organized in various ways to achieve different goals. It is fundamental to understand all the forms into which business enterprises are organized, and the pros and cons of each form. Lawyers are often called upon by business people to help them select the form of business through which they can most effectively achieve their business goals. Accordingly, we study sole proprietorships, partnerships, corporations, and the increasingly popular new form of enterprise called the limited liability company (“LLC”). Changing perspective, we study how lawyers practicing in different fields encounter and interact with business organizations whether through litigation, transactions, taxation, or public policy.

As a teaching methodology, we follow a hypothetical business established as a sole proprietorship and the transition of that business to a partnership, LLC, and corporation. We study how each of these forms is legally established and managed. The major focus of the course is on the most popular form of business organization, the corporation. We study how corporations are used to raise and manage capital, allocate risk, and divide ownership and management prerogatives. We focus on the responsibilities of boards of directors, the rights of shareholders, the issuance of stock, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate governance.

We briefly survey why and how companies “go public” and the implications of this decision and examine how the capital markets are regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and the securities laws.

As an overarching theme, we examine how businesses are regulated and why. We analyze the legal standard of conduct expected of companies, their owners and executives. We also examine broader policy questions such as how our economic system and private business needs promote business interests and shape laws and regulations in the United States.

Instructor(s): Lynk

Course Description:
This course introduces the student to the law of agency and examines the different forms of the most common business organizations in America today (sole proprietorships, partnerships (including limited partnerships and limited liability partnerships), limited liability companies (LLCs), and corporations. Regardless of an attorney’s specific area of practice, a basic understanding of the organization and management of business enterprises and of the law of agency is routinely needed across a broad and diverse range of legal specializations. We study the fiduciary relationships between the investors, owners and managers of a business. We study the laws applicable to businesses and the legal standard of conduct expected of companies and their owners and managers. While we study agency law, partnerships and LLCs, the major focus of the course is on the most popular form of business organization: the corporation, both public and close. We study how corporations are used to raise and manage capital, allocate risk, and divide ownership and management prerogatives. We focus on the responsibilities of boards of directors, the rights of shareholders, the issuance of stock, and corporate governance. The course analyzes basic business and legal decisions faced by business people. We also examine broader policy questions such as how business needs shape laws and regulations in the United States and, conversely, how laws and regulations promote and impede business. Readings from the Casebook are supplemented by readings from a book of Supplemental Materials. A Statutory Supplement is also required. No background in business, accounting, or finance is required.

Second and third year student-attorneys enrolled in the Civil Litigation Clinic are certified by the Arizona Supreme Court to practice law and represent real clients who do not have adequate resources to hire an attorney. Student attorneys are responsible for handling all aspects of civil and administrative practice including: interviewing and counseling clients; conducting discovery in civil litigation; representing clients in contested administrative hearings; drafting pleadings, motions and appellate briefs; representing clients in settlement conferences, arbitrations, and trials; and occasionally presenting oral argument in Arizona appellate courts and at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Most semesters, each student participates in one or more contested hearings or trials; acts as a fact investigator in preparation for a contested hearing or trial; and works on a written project such as a motion, brief, complaint, or disclosure statement.

Student-attorneys enrolled in the Civil Litigation Clinic represent clients in civil disputes and administrative proceedings under close faculty supervision. Cases may include:

• Consumer Fraud
• Employment Discrimination & Wage Claims
• Tenant’s Rights
• Benefits Eligibility for Individuals with Disabilities

The Civil Litigation Clinic also includes an advanced seminar that focuses on simulation exercises in such matters as: advanced interviewing techniques, fact investigation, case theory development, client counseling, civil discovery, negotiation, alternative dispute resolution, and courtroom advocacy. It is a graded course, with grading based on diligence, effectiveness and responsibility in representing clients, and on classroom participation.

Evidence and Professional Responsibility are prerequisite or co-requisite courses.

Civil Procedure

SLN #: 87597
Course Prefix: LAW-518
Course Section: 003
Credit Hours: 4
Instructor(s): Sahani

Course Description:
This course introduces the procedures, principles, and rules that govern civil litigation (not criminal matters), focusing on federal court. Specifically, you will study personal jurisdiction, subject matter jurisdiction, venue, choice of law (the “Erie doctrine”), pleading, joinder, discovery, summary judgment, and the preclusion doctrine. This class is different from most of your other first-year substantive law classes in one important respect. Courses such as torts, property, and contracts are known as "common law" courses in which the relevant legal principles derive from and develop through, primarily, judicial decisions. In contrast, civil procedure derives from formal court rules, statutes, the Constitution, and judicial interpretations thereof. As a result, most of the cases that you will read and consider in civil procedure interpret and apply formally codified procedural rules, statutes, or constitutional provisions. Ultimately, this course will help you develop and hone your legal analytical skills by reading, synthesizing, and applying rules, statutes, and case law.

Class Actions

SLN #: 75620
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 008
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Carey;Aragon

Course Description:
If certain requirements are satisfied, Federal Civil Procedure Rule 23 permits aggregate litigation in the form of a class action. This popular procedural device has been used in various substantive areas – e.g., antitrust, civil rights, consumer protection, employment, mass torts and securities – to resolve legal claims en masse. This course will focus on the procedural aspects of class action law, making the course content relevant to all types of class actions, without regard to the substantive nature of the claims. We will examine the requirements for class certification, the manner in which the class certification decision is made, the procedural protections required for class litigation, as well as various constitutional and other issues impacting the conclusive reach of litigated or settled class actions. The course is recommended for students with an interest in litigation and for those with an academic interest in this often hyped, and sometimes maligned, form of claim resolution.

Corporate Governance Law

SLN #: 77130
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 010
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Lynk

Course Description:
This course will focus on the responsibilities of corporate directors and officers, and of the lawyers who advise them, in managing and operating publicly traded for-profit business corporations. These issues have become increasingly important in the wake of the collapse of Enron and other corporations in 2000-2002; the enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002; the recession of 2008; and the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.

Business corporations are organized to make money. By maximizing profits businesses achieve their highest social utility -- they provide goods or services to consumers; profits to shareholders; jobs and wages to employees; and tax revenue to the state. To achieve these results within the law corporate managers should adhere to good corporate governance practices. What is good corporate governance? How does good corporate governance promote the goals of a good corporate citizen? Who is entitled or required to make the decisions necessary for a business corporation to function? What legal and ethical constraints do we as a society impose on corporate decision-makers in the exercise of their responsibilities? Are these constraints working? Is it appropriate to impose civil or criminal liability on a publicly-traded corporation, which can act only through its agents and directors for the illegal conduct of those agents or directors? Do corporate lawyers have a duty as "gatekeepers" to the board of directors, the shareholders and the corporation itself to insure that a proper governance structure is in place and is being followed, and that business decisions are being made in conformity with the law?

This seminar will examine these questions through various case studies drawn from different industries from the past as well as today. A desk book of materials including various articles, state and federal cases, and excerpts from recent federal legislation will be prepared and made available from the Copy Center. A casebook is not currently required.

The goal of the course is to illustrate the variety and complexity of dilemmas lawyers can face when advising corporate clients, and help students use the legal tools available to them to work through these problems toward satisfactory solutions. As a part of the seminar, students will be divided into teams of two persons each, and each team will make a PowerPoint presentation to the class on a corporate governance topic, chosen after consultation with Prof. Lynk, involving a particular corporation or industry. At the end of the course these presentations will be complied onto a disc and copies of the disc will be distributed to the entire class. Each student will also write a final paper.

Courtroom Ethics

SLN #: 83605
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 029
Credit Hours: 1
Instructor(s): Stuart

Course Description:
First class will meet on Thursday, September 13.

"Courtroom Ethics" is an advanced ethics seminar for law students who anticipate a litigation focus in public or private practice. Trial lawyers routinely face extremely difficult ethical dilemmas during trial. What must they do in the face of client perjury in open court? How do they resolve the problem of opposing counsel's refusal to abide by the court's rulings? What happens when the lawyer becomes aware of a judge's involvement with opposing counsel? How do they respond to the client's insistence that evidence be hidden, or a slanted view of it be argued to the jury? Are there courtroom solutions for witness perjury, juror misconduct, evidence spoliation, judicial intemperance, and client fraud? This course will focus on real life in Arizona’s courtrooms. It will provide solutions for the unexpected, yet inevitable ethical crisis that most trial lawyers face in the first few years of practice. The ethics of client preparation, witness coaching, voir dire, opening statements, direct and cross-examination, dealing with opposing counsel, interacting with judge and jury, and closing arguments will be covered in class. Society's disagreements are resolved in courtrooms. Thus, the pivotal need for ethical conduct is highest where the level of aggression is the greatest. My goal for Courtroom Ethics—2017 is to provide a framework of reference within which ethical dilemmas can be resolved. I will identify ethical rules and standards of practice, but the course will focus on solutions to ethical dilemmas, rather than merely identifying them.

Debtor/Creditor & Bankruptcy Law

SLN #: 87477
Course Prefix: LAW-653
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Baum

Course Description:
This course will cover basic debtor-creditor law and bankruptcy law and practice. It begins with the state and common law governing how money judgments are enforced, debtors' strategies to avoid collection, and who gets paid when there is not enough money to go around. This also includes federal statutory limitations on collection remedies. It then addresses liquidation under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code, the effect of the discharge of debts in bankruptcy, the exceptions to discharge, and the new “means test” limitations on eligibility to file for a Chapter 7 discharge. This leads to the Chapter 13 "wage earner" plan for repayment of creditors over time. The latter half of the course will focus more on aspects of commercial bankruptcy law, including the automatic stay, preferences and fraudulent conveyances, and the trustee's "strong arm" powers. It is these laws that prescribe the outer limits of creditors' rights and make the bankruptcy courts the de facto commercial courts for the nation. There are no prerequisites to this course, although a background in secured transactions would be very helpful.

Independent Research - Masters

SLN #: 92863
Course Prefix: SDO-592
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 1-3
Instructor(s):

Course Description:
A student wishing to pursue independent study or fieldwork for credit must obtain approval of the Dean’s designee and the consent of a faculty member to supervise a proposed project. The faculty member assigns the amount of credit that the proposal justifies. In awarding credit to a student for an independent study paper, a faculty member should require a quantum of work from the student which approximates the amount of work expected from students enrolled in a regular course taken for the same number of credits. Faculty members should set minimum lengths for independent study papers based upon the complexity of the subject, the existing volume of literature on the topic, the number of redrafts required to complete the assignment, and the originality of the student's work product. Although exact guidelines cannot be formulated in awarding credit, past practices indicate that generally a paper of approximately 12,500 – 18,750 words, including footnotes, which has been redrafted one or more times after review by the faculty member, will be required for three credits. Generally, a paper of roughly 8,750 – 12,500 words, including footnotes (with one redraft) should be required for two credits, and normally a minimum of 6,250 words, including footnotes (with one redraft), should be required for one credit.

Such issues as the following might be explored: Is there a moral obligation to obey the law? How, if at all, can criminal punishment be justified? What is the proper balance between emotion and reason in law? What relevance, if any, do forgiveness and mercy have in the law? How might one defend the idea of fundamental (or even natural) human rights? What relevance, if any, should personal virtues (or vices) have in the law? For example, should repentant offenders receive less punishment than unrepentant offenders? Is humility a virtue and, if so, should it be encouraged in lawyers and judges? Problems of transitional justice: When a repressive dictatorship is replaced by a rights respecting democracy, should the bad actors in the previous regime (such as police torturers and murderers) be punished? Readings will be from both classical and contemporary philosophers and from works of imaginative literature.

Law, Science & Technology

SLN #: 87464
Course Prefix: LAW-703
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Marchant;Cardineau

Course Description:
Nearly every field in the practice of law now involves some interaction between law and science and technology -- whether it be litigation, administrative law, environmental law, constitutional law, telecommunications law, health law, corporate law, employment law, contract law, property law and many others. Lawyers who are knowledgeable and comfortable in dealing with the scientific and technological aspects underlying many legal issues are in great demand at law firms, companies, government agencies and other providers of legal services. This survey course is intended to provide the student with an introduction to the various ways in which the legal system interacts with science and technology, and the skills and knowledge necessary to address such issues. The course will examine the interactions and conflicts between law and science using a series of illustrative case studies addressing current issues such as the internet, cloning, air pollution, the Daubert standard for admission of scientific evidence, tobacco research, the Microsoft antitrust case, electric vehicles, digital copyright, genetically modified foods, nanotechnology, anti-terrorism technology, global warming and privacy. No special background or expertise in science or technology is required to benefit from this course. Students can elect to take a take-home exam or write a research paper (20-30 pp.) for the course. This course qualifies as a “core course” for the LS&I Certificate program.

Neuroscience, Law & Ethics

SLN #: 73881
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 018
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Cohen;Robert

Course Description:
Advances in the rapidly developing field of neuroscience have allowed scientists to develop new techniques in investigating the brain activity that underlies cognitive phenomena. We will look at ways in which these advances challenge the law both directly (such as changing the common law definition of death from the cardio-pulmonary standard to brain death) and indirectly (such as changing our views on mental retardation and criminal culpability.) Thus, we will examine how the various emerging neuroscientific findings and technologies could or should affect such topics as moral reasoning, criminal culpability, lie detection, bias detection, cognitive enhancement, and punishment. The first part of the course will explore the neurological definition of personhood, as well as the implications of monitoring and predicting human behavior. The second part of the course will focus on efforts to manipulate or modify the brain. We will also explore some of the challenging questions raised by the increasing use of brain scans as evidence in the courtroom.

Private Property Rights

SLN #: 87350
Course Prefix: LAW-657
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Claus

Course Description:
This course will focus upon one of the most controversial topics in the law and a subject which has received considerable attention from the United States Supreme Court in recent years: the conflict between private property rights and the right of the government to acquire private property for public use or to regulate the use of private property in a manner which substantially limits its economic potential.

The course will include a detailed review of the most important United States Supreme Court decisions (e.g., Penn Central, Nollan, Lucas, Dolan, Palazzolo,Tahoe and Lingle) which, in the context of so-called "regulatory takings” disputes, explore the circumstances in which government action may go "too far" and constitute a taking of private property without just compensation. The eminent domain process will also be discussed, including the United States Supreme Court's decision in Kelo v. City of New London.

In addition, a unique section of the course will utilize the land acquisition litigation arising from the planning and construction of the Bank One Ballpark/Chase Field project (Phoenix, Arizona) as a case study. Pleadings from the appellate proceedings will supplement course materials and will focus on the purposes for which private property may be condemned. The course instructor was one of the trial and appellate attorney for the Maricopa County Stadium District.

The course will also examine the nature and history of title insurance and the role of title insurance in protecting private property rights. Unlike other courses which focus solely on a limited area of substantive law or, alternatively, on procedural or evidentiary considerations, this innovative course explores all aspects of "takings" law from philosophies underpinning (and contradicting with) takings jurisprudence to the evolution of the substantive law through the tactics and strategies often employed at trial and in land use planning decisions.

The format will be principally lecture, with lively group discussion anticipated. The course is recommended for future trial attorneys (government and private), for prospective real estate and land use lawyers, and for others with an academic interest in understanding the law and history behind the headlines.

Prosecutorial Ethics & Decision Making

SLN #: 93142
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 024
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Charlton

Course Description:
Other than the authority given to a soldier in time of war, few in government have the power of a prosecutor. A prosecutor may methodically and intentionally seek to take the life of another. A prosecutor may seek to remove a person from society, put them in prison, and keep them there until they die. Society gives prosecutors broad discretion. Certainly a prosecutor must follow the rules of law and ethics, but is that all we as a society should ask of a prosecutor? Many decisions made by a prosecutor are guided by ethics, others decisions require that a prosecutor look beyond the rules of ethics. When the rule of law and ethics allow for the death penalty in a specific case, what other considerations may a prosecutor use when determining whether to seek the ultimate penalty? When thousands of crimes occur in a single day, how should a prosecutor determine which cases are deserving of the government's resources? This course will focus on how a prosecutor should exercise his or her discretion. We will begin with the rules of ethics and standard manuals such as the U.S. Attorney's Manual. We will then cover widely accepted guidance for prosecutors such as Justice Jackson's famous speech to U.S. Attorneys and Deputy Attorney General James Comey's writing on the courage to say no. The course will cover a wide variety specific prosecutorial decisions such as District Attorney Michael Nifong's decision to prosecute the Duke Lacrosse players, or U.S. Attorney General Elliot Richardson's refusal to obey President Nixon's order to fire the Watergate Special Prosecutor. The course instructor was a career prosecutor for more than 16 years, serving at the Arizona Attorney General's Office as an Assistant Attorney General, and at the U.S. Attorney's Office as an Assistant U.S. Attorney. He was the U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona from 2001 to 2007, when he was fired for opposing Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' decision to seek the death penalty in a homicide case. The format for the course will be lecture and group discussion. The course will be graded on the basis of a final exam, a short paper and class participation, as described in the Syllabus. The course is recommended for any student who is considering a practice in criminal law.

The Moral Leader

SLN #: 87496
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 016
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Cabot

Course Description:
The successful lawyer will be presented with moral and ethical choices throughout his professional career. This innovative course is designed to encourage students to confront those fundamental moral challenges, to develop skills in moral analysis and judgment, and to come to terms with their own definition of moral leadership and how it can be translated into action. The course is based on the leadership course, The Moral Leader, brought by Professor Robert Coles, an educator and psychiatrist, to Harvard Business School in the 1980s. Since then it has been taught to thousands of students at Harvard’s schools of business, law, medicine, architecture, politics, design, divinity and education. Drawing on the inspiration of major literary and historical figures such as Machiavelli, Truman, and Achebe, and based upon an impressive array of literary sources, including novels, plays, history, and biography, the seminar-style setting of the course requires students to be thoroughly prepared for each session, willing to participate in rigorous analysis, continual dialogue, and intensive discussion.

The focus of this course is not on morality versus immorality, but on leadership, moral decision-making, and action. The course is comprised of three modules: (i) Moral Challenge, in which students explore fundamental moral problems and the strategies used to come to terms with them; (ii) Moral Reasoning, in which students are introduced to methods and modes of "moral reasoning" that help in justifying, or not justifying, decisions made in complex situations; and (iii) Moral Leadership, in which students confront examples of moral leadership per se.

In 13 sessions each two hours long, with readings in a multiplicity of settings ranging from ancient Greece to contemporary America, students learn to identify moral problems, to address them systematically, and to develop skills that aid them in their professional and personal lives.

Forty percent (40%) of the grade for the course is based on class participation and sixty percent (60%) on a paper, roughly 15 pages in length.

The State Attorneys General

SLN #: 87497
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 017
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Goddard;Segal

Course Description:
Understanding the differences that separate state attorneys general and the 13,000 lawyers practicing in their offices across the country from the rest of the legal profession is important, not only for lawyers who wish to someday work for a state AG, but for all who will be called on to negotiate or litigate either in coordination with or against a state attorney general's office. In other words, almost everyone who practices law needs to understand the state attorneys general!

The roots of the Office of State Attorney General run deep in American jurisprudence. All thirteen American colonies had an attorney general and today all fifty states provide legal services to state government through an office of state attorney general that possesses extraordinarily broad jurisdiction. In all states but Hawaii, New Jersey, Wyoming and Alaska, the Office is independent of the governor.

This combination of sweeping jurisdiction and constitutional independence has produced a unique American legal institution of growing importance. Although most often discussed in the context of the largest and most controversial of legal issues, the real task of attorneys general and their staffs is to deliver high quality legal advice that will guide state government in a constitutional and ethical manner. Although each state is unique, there is a remarkable similarity between state attorneys general when addressing similar challenges and issues.

This course will examine the unique nature of the office of state attorney general, the limits of jurisdiction, unique powers under consumer protection laws, the ethical implications of representing the public instead of an identifiable client, Supreme Court practice, multistate advocacy, the decision not to defend a state action, relations with private attorneys, public corruption prosecutions, nonprofit governance and other areas of interest (such as border crime, polygamy, mortgage prosecutions, the states’ role in immigration reform, and marijuana and tobacco) as time permits.

Topics in Bankruptcy Law

SLN #: 93031
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 022
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Curley

Course Description:
This course explores how local, national, and international companies reorganize and survive during these difficult financial times. This course initially considers the concept of reorganization under the current bankruptcy law. Building on this knowledge, the course then tackles the issues of how and why companies file a bankruptcy petition, what funding or assets are available to pay creditors, how a city or county continues to operate while in bankruptcy, what types of plans are successful, and what happens if the company is unable to persuade creditors to accept a proposed plan. From an international law standpoint, we will consider the background of cross-border insolvencies, the new model insolvency law, and the interplay of treaties and public policy in the company’s reorganization and how such influences may affect the legal result. The course will include certain case studies and problems to assist you in understanding the legal issues to reach practical solutions.

While this course has no formal prerequisites, it is recommended that students have previously taken secured transactions or one of the other two bankruptcy courses first.

Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Altman

Course Description:
This class will focus on the process and practice of white collar and corporate criminal prosecution, defense and case resolution mainly in the pre-charging phase. It will not be a class that focuses on the elements of substantive criminal offenses, although we will analyze at least one federal substantive crime. Rather it will attempt to examine the process the government uses to investigate and prosecute what are commonly referred to as white collar crimes and the process and methodology defense lawyers and corporate counsel use to respond to these investigations, to avoid prosecution, and to resolve cases. We will also look at prosecution policy and discretion, the process of plea negotiation, the issues confronted in parallel criminal and civil proceedings, the collateral consequences of a criminal conviction, and the ethical issues that arise in these contexts.

Writing Assistants can expect to spend an average of six to eight hours a week fulfilling their duties, although this may vary from week to week.
