Instructor(s): Weinstein-Tull

Course Description:
The Fourteenth Amendment is at the core of the law’s most important and difficult problems: segregation, women’s rights, marriage equality, abortion, the right to privacy, the right to vote, and others. The Amendment, and the rights it confers, has shaped what it means to be American. In this class, we will study the law of the Fourteenth Amendment with an emphasis on equal protection, due process, and enforcement. We will also study the complicated ways in which the Amendment has interacted with evolving social movements, federalism, and states’ rights.

Students are allowed to take both The First Amendment class and the 14th Amendment class or the Survey of Individual Rights in Constitutional Law. You cannot take all 3 classes.

If you have already taken Constitutional Law II, you can only take either the 1st Amendment or the 14th Amendment class with permission from Dean Williams.

Blockchain & Cryptocurrencies: Law & Policy

SLN #: 71104
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 006
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Marchant

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.

Building Justice Institutions

SLN #: 81601
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 030
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Huber

Course Description:
This course will focus on the importance of rule of law to U.S. engagement with a partner nation. Students will learn how the U.S. assists foreign countries and how the U.S. balances its priorities with a host country’s needs and interests. We will examine what types of justice assistance the U.S. provides, which agencies and departments within the U.S. Government are responsible for assistance, and who our foreign counterparts are. We will also discuss the roles and agendas of other actors who build justice institutions in transitioning countries, such as national governments and multi-lateral organizations. Students will learn how to plan rule of law development and how to formulate a strategy of engagement with a recipient country. Students will be challenged to think about all elements (political, military, financial, social, and environmental) that factor into U.S. engagement with a foreign country and will be asked to account for these when designing a program of justice sector assistance. By placing rule of law development within the context of broader U.S. national security goals and interests, students will begin to understand how rule of law fits into overall U.S. foreign policy. At the end of the course, students will be well-positioned to begin the process of embarking on a career of international rule of law development and justice capacity building.

Business Organizations

SLN #: 84256
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.

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.

If certain requirements are satisfied, Federal Civil Procedure Rule 23 permits aggregate litigation in the form of a class action.

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.

Debtor/Creditor & Bankruptcy Law

SLN #: 84282
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.

The course is primarily taught by the problem method, with a focus on the practical application of the rules in a trial setting. This is a complex and difficult subject, but one that most practicing lawyers -- including non-litigators -- need to know; and it would be an especially tough subject to try to learn from scratch from a bar review course. Students should make every effort to take Evidence before taking Trial Advocacy or clinical courses.

Independent Research - Masters

SLN #: 87877
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.

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.

In light of the interactive and practice-focused nature of this course, it will rely on student participation to a greater degree than in the typical law school course.

The precise grading criteria will be provided to students in the course syllabus prior to or at the first class session.

The bulk of this class is interactive and practice-focused, and therefore attendance is of particular importance.

Withdrawal for excessive absence will be recorded as a failing grade or as a withdrawal, at the instructors’ discretion.

Philosophy of Crime and Punishment

SLN #: 73535
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 017
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Murphy

Course Description:
The Philosophy of Crime and Punishment (2 credits). This seminar will explore such topics as the nature of punishment, the justification of punishment, the emotions relevant to punishment (for example: should expressions of remorse lower the sentence for some crimes?), excuses and justifications, and possible alternatives to punishment. Readings will be mainly from the most important and influential 20th and 21st century philosophers of punishment with perhaps some literature and a few legal cases of philosophical interest. The seminar is an offering in what might be called "law and humanities" and will not be doctrinal in a traditional legal sense. I do not allow the use of laptop computers in my seminars (I want eye contact conversations with students, not dictations to stenographers) and expect all students to attend the first session ready to discuss the reading assigned for that meeting.

Private Property Rights

SLN #: 84194
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.

Course Description:
This course focuses on the application process before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) for trademark registrations. Included within the scope of this course will be considerations to be evaluated prior to commencing the application process, including pre-application trademark searches and evaluating marks for registrability, bases for seeking registration, priority of use, priority of application, use in interstate commerce, and specimens of use. This course is designed to follow a trademark application from preparation through to registration on the Principal Register. Attention will be given to the formal, procedural, and substantive requirements for trademark registration, the examination process, possible bases for initial refusal, strategies for responding to non-final office actions, final office actions, petitions to the Director, and appeals to the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. The course focuses on practical skills needed to successfully prosecute applications to registration before the USPTO, including drafting responses to office actions, developing the record, drafting briefs for appeals to the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, and presenting oral arguments before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

The course also necessarily addresses substantive areas of trademark law, which often provide a basis for refusal of registration, including that a mark is generic, merely descriptive, misdescriptive, geographically descriptive, contains scandalous matter, or that a mark is likely to cause confusion with an existing mark or prior application. Therefore, a basic understanding of intellectual property law is recommended but not essential.

Prosecutorial Ethics & Decision Making

SLN #: 84296
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 016
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 #: 84619
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 019
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 #: 84626
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 020
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.

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.
