Access to Justice Through Technology

SLN #: 32456
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 041
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Juetten

Course Description:
Access to Justice (A2J) has become somewhat of a buzz phrase in the legal community and, in some areas, the meaning is murky. Some see A2J as providing access to civil justice for those below the poverty level while others expand to include those of moderate means and to add in criminal matters.

This course takes a broad view of the access to justice gap with an emphasis on practical approaches and solutions in addition to the theoretical or philosophical. We will explore not only the access to all types of justice but also widen our discussion to include client education and preventative measures. In addition, throughout we will examine technology’s impact on this access to justice crisis, from both within and outside the legal industry.

The course is organized around some of the various groups and entities and the role that each play with respect to A2J. We will discuss the need for change within the legal industry particularly with respect to technology adoption, regulation, and law school education. The class ends with 10-minute presentations from each student on their paper or project topic.

Copyright Law

SLN #: 23393
Course Prefix: LAW-646
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Kappes

Course Description:
This course provides a detailed introduction to the law of copyright. It emphasizes the basics of traditional copyright protection for art, music, and literature and but also considers the application of those basic principles in an age of digital technology (music sharing á la Grokster, internet hyperlinking, protection of computer programs and user interfaces, and similar current issues). Copyright law is now important well beyond the entertainment industry, although many of the decisions we study derive from that genre. (Humphrey Bogart, Cole Porter, George Harrison, J.D. Salinger, Superman, Mickey Mouse, and many other luminaries make cameo appearances in our cases.) Copyright (and copyright-like protection schemes) have become an increasingly important element of a general law practice as a result of the explosive growth in economic value of information-based products, like computer software and digital networks and databases. The lawyer ignorant of basic copyright principles will be increasingly handicapped in many areas of practice, such as negotiating technology transfers, drafting contractual rights, developing schemes of protection and privacy, distinguishing criminal from noncriminal behavior, and in litigation. But more important than all that, the cases and materials are lots of fun!

Creative Writing for Lawyers

SLN #: 32425
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 040
Credit Hours: 1
Instructor(s): Stuart

Course Description:
This course will meet on 7 Thursdays during the semester. Dates to be determined

This a one-credit workshop/class delivered in seven two-hour sessions. It is designed for law students who already write “clearly, cogently, and comprehensively,” but think there should be more than those three “C’s. There is. I call it creative writing for lawyers. The secret is something lawyers did not learn in law school. We learned it by practicing law. And we learned it first from clients, who demanded more from us than just clarity, cogency, and comprehensive content. Unlike the legal world, the literary world has always demanded systematic focus, a conscious writing style, and an understanding of the patterns that exist in one variation or another (drumroll here). The secret is effective storytelling. The course syllabus is not a story, and just barely qualifies as something the three Cs would be proud of. The syllabus hints at, suggests, and implies what my course is designed to do. It's designed to whet your appetite. If writing for story tastes good to you, then you will use the techniques that fiction writers use in telling their stories. But you will always be bound by the truth; in legal briefs, letters to clients, and in legal opinions. Truth is the law's glue.

This class is a crossover from merely conveying the legal issue to telling the legal story underlying the issue. That’s how Louis Achinloss, Earle Stanly Gardner, John Grisham, John Mortimor, Richard North Patterson, and Scott Turrow did it. All were excellent lawyers before they became best-seller novelists. First, they wrote the law, then they crossed over and wrote fiction. They drafted legal papers the same way they later drafted manuscripts—by using story as the spine of whatever they wrote. They wrote differently from appellate judges whose opinions will control much of your life as a lawyer. And differently from how clients, trial judges, and opposing lawyers expect you to write. If you write for story, in addition the three Cs, you will make judges happy, clients smile, and astound your colleagues.

Perhaps I’m a one-man band, but I think clients and judges deserve more from us than we give them in our writing. Some lawyers practice law in much the same way musicians tune pianos, or cosmeticians apply makeup. They do it competently, but without understanding the value of drama, or the power of dramatic skills. Think about Truman Capote and his gift to the legal world; not to mention his impact on the literary world. He recognized the public’s growing interest in nonfiction, but objected to that genre’s traditionally dry style. Did he have lawyers in mind when he thought about “dry style”? He posed a groundbreaking question in the 1960’s—what would happen if a true story were told in the form of a novel? His 1965 novel (“In Cold Blood”) is a meticulously researched, factual account of the rampage, and ultimate execution of two sociopathic murderers. He melded the accuracy of nonfiction with the dramatic force of fiction. You won’t master any of the vital skills of using storytelling as the spine of legal writing in this class. It’s only seven two-hour workshops. But you’ll extend your legal-literary reach. That will inch you into a new generation of lawyers, some of whom took this class. They now write on the foggy frontier between legal writing and creative nonfiction writing. It might rejuvenate you.

Course Prefix: LAW-737
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Demaine

Course Description:
This seminar provides students an opportunity to study laws and policies governing cults and alternative religions. While the definition of a “cult” will be a topic of initial study in the seminar, it may be conceived of loosely as a group with a charismatic leader whose members are persuaded to relinquish their self-identities and material possessions in furtherance of the group’s goals. In addition to analyzing the definition of a “cult,” the first part of the seminar will be devoted to discussing the various types of cults, studying particular cults, and learning about cultic activities. The remainder of the seminar will cover domestic and foreign legal and policy issues generated by cults, including the legal rights of cultic organizations, anti-cult organizations, cult members, and cult members’ families. To the degree that religious movements falling outside the mainstream, conventional religions are conceptually similar to cults or treated similarly under the law, they also will be covered.

Students may take the seminar for two or three credits. Students who select the three-credit option will register for a one-credit independent study with Professor Demaine and write 25 additional pages during the semester.

Health Care Transactions and Investigations

SLN #: 32205
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 016
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Milligan

Course Description:
Health Care Transactions and Investigations: Two sides of the "Fraud & Abuse" Coin

Transactional attorneys practicing in the health care field must be equipped with the skills necessary to handle the various types of transactions that occur in other fields, e.g., ownership and asset purchases, employment and service agreements, and real estate transactions. Litigation attorneys practicing in the health care field must be able to handle the wide variety of disputes and proceedings that other litigators face. In addition, both transactional attorneys and litigators who practice in the health care field must be familiar with wide array of rules applicable specifically to health care providers, including rules applicable to providers who bill for services provided to members of federal health care programs, e.g., Medicare and Medicaid (the “F&A Rules”). Also, since health care transactions often trigger internal investigations and self-reports, as well as administrative, civil and criminal investigations and proceedings, students who wish to practice in these areas likely will need to know how the F&A Rules impact the structuring of transactions; how the transactions might lead to investigations or proceedings; and, how those investigations and proceedings might unfold.

This course is designed to provide students with:
a. A detailed understanding of the F&A Rules that come into play in structuring common health care transactions;
b. A working knowledge of common health care transactions and the ways in which the F&A Rules impact the structure of those transactions, as well as guidance on how to provide clients with practical advice about risks associated with transactions that implicate the F&A Rules;
c. An overview of the enforcement environment relating to the F&A Rules, the agencies that enforce these Rules, common types of internal and external investigations, and the administrative, civil and criminal investigation and proceedings that may flow from health care transactions that implicate the F&A Rules;
d. A familiarity with the F&A Rules that are used by investigators and agencies to evaluate health care transactions, and to pursue enforcement actions; and
e. Insights into how the representation of health care clients can expose attorneys to some of the same types of risks faced by those clients, and how to balance the attorney’s obligations to the client with the attorney’s other professional obligations.

Students are strongly advised to complete Health Law & Policy (Law 650) before taking this course.

Health Insurance Reform

SLN #: 11573
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 017
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Michaels

Course Description:
The course will focus on the law surrounding three key principles of health insurance reform: (1) providing access to health care coverage through private insurance plans; (2) the changing provider payment systems utilized by health insurers that impact health care costs and quality outcomes; and (3) the need for greater consumer engagement in the health insurance marketplace through the design and pricing of health benefit plans. The objective is to examine the legal interplay of the three principles referenced above in the health insurance market context. Each of these components will need to be aligned if meaningful health insurance reform is to occur in the United States.

The course will analyze the commercial health insurance markets with a particular focus on the impact of the Affordable Care Act on the stability of these markets as well as any changes that are made to the legislation in its design or implementation, or as a result of judicial determinations. The use of private insurers to provide coverage to Medicare beneficiaries, including the Medicare Advantage Part C and Medicare Part D Programs, will also be reviewed and analyzed, along with managed care plans engaged by State Medicaid Programs (with a focus on Arizona’s Medicaid Program) to provide coverage to lower income populations. In addition, the impact of prescription drug prices on health insurance premiums will also be addressed.

Evolving changes in provider payment systems utilized by health insurers will be assessed to identify the dramatic shift away from the traditional fee for service model to payment innovations focused on quality outcomes and cost efficiencies. How will these new changes affect the legal environment which was initially based on a fee for service system?

Finally, the role of the insured as a consumer of health care services will be explored. This will include the issues of financial engagement and wellness, and what consumers need to know about provider networks, health care costs and quality outcomes to ensure the competitiveness of the health insurance marketplace.

Independent Study

SLN #: 11536
Course Prefix: LAW-781
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.

Course Prefix: LAW-709
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Fromholz;Fowler

Course Description:
This class will provide an overview of the international human rights law system. We will examine the primary substantive standards that comprise the core of international human rights law, such as rights to a fair trial and to be free from genocide, torture, summary execution, arbitrary arrest and detention, and discrimination. We will also examine so-called “second-generation rights,” such as economic, social, and cultural rights. We will study the primary institutions and processes for the enforcement of such rights: treaty monitoring bodies, the regional human rights courts and commissions, the United Nations institutions, including the Human Rights Commission and the Security Council, domestic implementation through legislative and judicial mechanisms, as well as through inter-governmental diplomacy, reporting, and the mobilization of shame by non-governmental organizations. And, we will examine the explosion of international criminal tribunals, beginning with an examination of the Nuremberg trials, then a look at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, and the new International Criminal Court.

Labor and Employment Law

SLN #: 30484
Course Prefix: LAW-394
Course Section: 002
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Deatherage

Course Description:
This course surveys the vast number of state and federal laws, and administrative regulations, that are relevant to the workplace and conduct of business. The course looks at both the interests of management and the rights of workers, which rights and interests are sometimes in conflict. As an introduction to the subject, time is devoted to the considerable number of U.S. Supreme Court cases that track the evolution of the law. This evolution extends from the laissze-faire philosophy in the early U.S. economy, to the advent of workers’ rights and protections, through the halcyon days of labor unions and then their decline, and finally to the current legal issues in the new “gig” economy. Students are asked to consider the perspective of business management and its goals vs. the perspective of workers and their goals, and how the law searches for a compromise to resolve these conflicts.

Law and Literature: Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment

SLN #: 15277
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 027
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Murphy

Course Description:
LAW AND LITERATURE: This seminar will involve discussing three works of literature that deal with crime, punishment, and (perhaps) redemption--works separated by approximately 2000 years. We will first discuss two plays by Sophocles: OEDIPUS THE KING and OEDIPUS AT COLONUS. After spending two sessions of the 13 discussing these, we will spend the remainder of the semester discussing Dostoevsky's novel CRIME AND PUNISHMENT. It is vital that the student use only the Everyman's Library translation of this novel (ordered for this course) by Pevear and Volokhonsky since many other translations are terrible and even the OK ones will have different pagination from the Everyman edition--something that will make references made in class hard to find and discuss. There are some other editions (one from Vintage) that use the P and V translation with the same pagination, so one of those will also be OK. NOTE WELL: (1)The Instructor does not allow laptop computers or other electronic devices to be used or even opened in class since they inhibit discussion and turn students into stenographers. (2) Prior to reading the assigned books you should not read any preliminary material (including prefaces to the books assigned). You should "wait on the story" and form your own view about its meaning before being influenced by the view of some critic.

Law, Litigation & Science

SLN #: 20393
Course Prefix: LAW-633
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Saks

Course Description:
This course aims to fill a gap in the education of most lawyers, namely, how to effectively think about and use empirical evidence. How do lawyers and the law obtain needed facts about the way the world works, evaluate those facts, and employ them in making law as well as in deciding cases? The course will improve your skills in dissecting an opponent’s evidence and in presenting your own more intelligently and effectively. Although the materials of the course emphasize cases involving social science data, the intellectual skills and legal issues are equally applicable to any other kind of empirical evidence in law (e.g., biomedical, economic, forensic science, etc.), and some of the cases and materials we will use involve those other subject matters. The course has these goals: (1) To assist students in developing an ability to think rigorously and critically about factual assertions and the evidence offered in their support. (2) To understand the evolving doctrine that governs how the law obtains, evaluates, and gives legal effect to empirical knowledge. (3) To examine these issues in their legal context, as they occur in a wide range of substantive legal areas.

Malpractice Litigation

SLN #: 14428

Instructor(s): Rayes;Tryon

Course Description:
This class will meet for 6 weeks beginning Tuesday, January 8, and continuing through Tuesday, February 12. The final exam will be administered at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, February 19.

This course focuses on one of the most specialized areas of litigation; suits against licensed professionals, doctors, lawyers, engineers, architects, etc. The personal and professional consequences of such suits increase the intensity of the litigation. Add the fact that insurance policies for professionals, unlike other liability policies, often provide that the insured must approve any settlement, and the atmosphere surrounding these suits can become supercharged.

This course analyzes the elements and requirements of negligence claims against licensed professionals. The course explores substantive tort and contract law causes of action and defenses such as non- party at fault and the economic loss doctrine. Respondeat superior and its applicability to these cases, as well as developing concepts set forth in Section 56 of the Restatement (Third) of the Law Governing Lawyers, are also considered. The course also explores the impact that a claim of professional negligence has with the professional’s licensing board.

In addition to exploring the legal issues commonly experienced in claims against all licensed professionals, the course also addresses important practical issues that face the trial attorney such as insurance coverage, statute of limitations, statute of repose and claims in excess of the insurance policy limits.

Students will be presented with common issues in medical injury cases from initial intake to trial, including how to deal with medical witnesses and documents, alternative dispute resolution and the various ways to effectively present medical evidence at hearing or trial. As this is a practice oriented course, students will be presented with the opportunity to apply what they are learning to the investigation, pleading, discovering, negotiating and presenting a hypothetical medical malpractice case.

This is a skills-based intellectual property course covering patent licensing and patent monetization transactions. Patent licensing and monetization represents the largest financial portion of the patent economy. This practical course will focus on negotiation skills, contract drafting skills, presentation skills, and technical knowledge as used in actual licensing and monetization negotiations as well as integrating key subjects from patent law to demonstrate real-world business transactions involving patents. Students will conduct mock negotiations and contract drafting for three separate patent transactions: a mock patent sale, a mock licensing engagement, and a mock patent portfolio transaction. In particular for the mock licensing engagement, students will be divided into teams representing separate companies that each potentially infringe a patent owned by the other company and: negotiate and draft a Non-Disclosure/Standstill Agreement in order to start a substantive licensing discussion, draft claim charts showing infringement, develop a business model for damages, conduct a technical presentation showing their claim chart alleging infringement and business case for licensing, conduct a rebuttal presentation attacking the other team’s claim chart for lack of infringement and invalidity of the patent as well as rebutting damages, negotiate a term sheet for a cross-licensing deal, and draft a cross-license. Students will also receive lectures on core patent law licensing and monetization issues, contractual patent issues, portfolio transactions driving Mergers & Acquisitions, patent consortiums, patent portfolio market economics and other patent monetization vehicles.

Grades are based on quizzes that go with the recorded lectures, regular homework assignments, mock-negotiation performance, and a final project.

Students require no technical background for this course. Students are encouraged, but not required to take the patent law course or IP survey course prior to taking this class.

Public Health Law and Ethics

SLN #: 32189
Course Prefix: LAW-651
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Hodge Jr.

Course Description:
The protection and preservation of the public’s health are quintessential goals of government. Equally critical is the need to respect individual rights and norms in American society. The classic conundrum of public health law and ethics is the extent to which government may restrain or impinge citizens’ interests, directly or indirectly, to promote the health and safety of the community. This course explores the inherent tensions between promoting the public’s health and protecting the legal and ethical rights and interests of individuals. Primary objectives are to: (1) better understand the structure and functions of the public health system; (2) define public health and public health law in theory and practice; (3) understand the roles of government, private sector entities, and individuals in assuring the conditions for people to be healthy; and (4) assess multifarious legal and ethical conflicts between governmental interests in public health and individual rights. These conflicts will be examined through critical facets of public health practice— e.g., health promotion and communication; public health powers such as immunization, testing, screening, quarantine, and isolation; public health emergencies; regulation of businesses and professions; and tort litigation. Of final note - while protecting the public’s health has global dimensions, this course focuses on public health law in the U.S.

Instructor(s): Halaby

Course Description:
Through the lens of real world experience, with a focus on recent and current events, this one-hour seminar will use the platform of intellectual property protection to examine the processes by which law is made, and policy implemented, by legislators, courts, administrative agencies, and private actors.

Instructor(s): Matsumura

Course Description:
When it comes to the creation of human life, yesterday’s science fiction has become today’s reality. Stories about baby sellers, egg freezing, runaway surrogate mothers, genetic enhancement, and octomoms have exposed the lack of meaningful legal regulation of assisted reproductive technologies and have spurred calls for reform. But the extent to which the State should regulate who can reproduce and under what circumstances raises a host of difficult questions. This course will search for answers to those questions by considering the role the Constitution, tort, contract, property, and criminal law have traditionally played in advancing the State’s interest in reproduction and discussing how those doctrines should adapt to new technologies and family configurations. Topics covered will include abortion, gamete donation, In Vitro Fertilization, surrogacy, genetic screening and enhancement, eugenics, medical ethics, and alternative family formation. Course materials will include articles from newspapers, websites, medical journals, and law reviews; cases and statutes; excerpts from books; and documentaries and television news broadcasts.
