Natural Resources

SLN #: 46565
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: D02
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Bradshaw

Course Description:
Most of the great open spaces of the western United States - forests, mountains, and deserts - are owned by the federal government in the form of National Forests, National Parks, National Wildlife Refuges, and lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). These publicly-owned lands are important sources of such commodities as timber, minerals, and oil and natural gas. They are also valued by the public for their natural scenery, recreational opportunities, wildlife, and wilderness qualities. Over the last several decades, these lands have been the scene of controversy and conflict over the environmental effects of logging, mining, livestock grazing, recreation, and other land uses. This course will cover the history of federal public land law, the administration of federal public lands, and the interpretation and application of the major federal laws affecting public land management. In addition to casebook readings and class discussions, each student will work with a small group of other students to prepare a presentation to the class on a topic of current controversy in public land management. This course heavily emphasizes collaboration, group work, and real-world perspectives provided by practitioners. In-class and out-of-class activities require student participation in teams and giving graded oral presentations.

Course Section: A01
Credit Hours: 3
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.

Independent Study

SLN #: 40115
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.
