Business Organizations

SLN #: 11489
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.

Contemporary Issues in Tribal Economic Development

SLN #: 12741
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: D01
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Morgan

Class will meet Monday, March 9 through Friday, March 13.
Monday through Thursday 9:00 am - 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Friday 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Federal Indian Law I is a pre-requisite for this class.

The class is limited to 10 students - if there is more student demand, students seeking the Indian Law certificate will receive preference.

Ho-Chunk, Inc. (HCI) is the award-winning economic development corporation owned by the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. Established in 1994 in Winnebago, Nebraska with one employee, HCI has grown to over 1,100 employees with operations in Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, Minnesota, Kansas, California, Georgia, Louisiana, Florida, Washington, D.C., Afghanistan, Mexico and Iraq. HCI operates 18 subsidiaries in a diverse range of industries including information technology, construction, government contracting, professional services, wholesale distribution, office products and technology, logistics, marketing, media and retail.

The class is designed to train students to implement practical political, legal and economic solutions to help Tribe's implement a broad range of economic development activities. It is offered by Lance Morgan, who has combined his legal and business expertise to develop one of the most successful native owned corporations in the country, Ho-Chunk, Inc. Historically Federal Indian Law has had a negative effect on tribal economic development by limiting the tribes in a number of ways. The seminar will focus the economic impediments create by Federal Indian Law. The class seminar will not just describe the problem but give real examples of how tribes have actually overcome such legal impediments to create successful businesses and bypass some of the legal restrictions. Additionally, the seminar will also focus on having the students understand Federal Indian Law is restrictive in nature and that if they are going to be successful lawyers that they will have to use Federal Indian Law as a starting point, not an endpoint.

Copyright Law

SLN #: 21539
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 #: 11480
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 008
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.

Cults & Alt Religions

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 after the spring semester begins, and write 25 additional pages during the semester.

Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Curley

Course Description:
This course will cover basic bankruptcy law and practice, with some information concerning the rights of debtors and creditors under nonbankruptcy law. It begins with the state and common law governing debt collection by creditors, debtors' strategies to avoid collection, who gets paid when there is not enough money to go around, and why many debtors and creditors prefer the rights and remedies under bankruptcy law. The course then considers basic bankruptcy law concepts, such as property to be administered in a bankruptcy, a creditor’s ability be paid, prohibition of creditors’ actions while a debtor is in bankruptcy, and the ability of the debtor to have a “fresh start.” The course also considers basic issues that debtors or creditors may face under Chapter 7 (liquidation), Chapter 11 (repayment by individuals or businesses of debts over time pursuant to a plan), or Chapter 13 (the ability of individuals who receive regular wages to repay their creditors over time pursuant to plan). The end of the course will focus on the outer limits of creditors' rights and what makes 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.

Evidence

SLN #: 11464

Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Baier

Credit Hours: 4
Instructor(s): Scharff

Course Description:
Federal income tax touches virtually every aspect of modern American life. For practicing lawyers, a basic understanding of the structure and vocabulary of the tax code is critical. In this course, an introduction to federal income taxation, we will learn the basic rules that govern the income tax system, with a particular focus on individuals and unincorporated businesses.

As we delve into the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code, we will also consider fundamental tax policy questions along the way, asking not just what the law is, but also, what it could be and, perhaps, should be.

Health Care Transactions and Investigations

SLN #: 13370
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 020
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 encouraged to complete Health Law & Policy (Law 650) before taking this Course.

The final examination will be an open book examination.

Health Insurance Reform

SLN #: 13374
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 021
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Michaels

Course Description:
The course will focus on the law surrounding three key principles of health insurance reform: (1) providing expanded access to health care coverage through private insurance plans in both the commercial and government subsidized markets; (2) the need of health insurers to change provider payment systems that impact health care costs and quality outcomes; and (3) the challenges associated with greater consumer engagement in the health insurance marketplace through the design and pricing of health benefit plans, as well as increased consumer understanding of health care costs and quality outcomes. The objective of the course is to examine the legal interplay of the three principles referenced above in the health insurance market context. These components will need to be aligned if meaningful health insurance reform is to occur in the United States under the current health care financing system.

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 (including 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, including efforts by health insurers to manage these costs, and state and federal law initiatives that attempt to control prescription drug prices.

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 the information consumers need to have about provider networks, health care costs, and quality outcomes to ensure the competitiveness of the health insurance marketplace.

Jurisprudence

SLN #: 14102

Instructor(s): Murphy

Jurisprudence (philosophy of law) is usually divided into two areas of inquiry: analytical jurisprudence (the analysis of legal concepts--e.g., law, responsibility, liberty, rights, etc.) and normative jurisprudence (the evaluation of legal doctrines and practices), The emphasis of this course will be on normative jurisprudence. Such issues as the following might be explored: What is law and the rule of law? 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, Litigation & Science

SLN #: 19182
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.

Litigation Ethics and Skills

SLN #: 17161
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 032
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Cohen

Course Description:
Using clips from movies and television programs, short stories, depositions and trial transcripts and other sources for hypotheticals we will explore the ethical and professionalism issues that arise in the everyday practices of civil and criminal litigation. As this course will look not only at the issues that arise but also how they are and should be addressed, we will spend about equal time on ethics and professionalism issues and litigation skills. The method of instruction will include lecture, class discussion (at both the full class and break-out groups levels) and in class simulations. The goal is for students to be able to recognize the ethical and professionalism issues they will confront in the everyday practice of law and to have the confidence, because of their familiarity with litigation practices and skills, to confront and deal with such issues appropriately. This class is offered as a pass/fail course. Students will be expected to attend class, participate in the in-class activities, and write two short (3-5 page) papers commenting on ethical issues presented by either media and actual depictions of litigation practice.

Malpractice Litigation

SLN #: 14130
Course Prefix: LAW-791

Credit Hours: 1
Instructor(s): Rayes;Tryon

Course Description:
This class will meet for 6 weeks beginning Tuesday, January 14, and continuing through Tuesday, February 18. The final exam will be administered at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, February 25.

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.

In addition, the course focuses on the tensions between law and ethics in the legal and journalistic disciplines, and how the aspirational considerations of the two professions both inform and obscure the duties of reporters and their counsel.

Medical Error: The Next Generation of Law

SLN #: 17207
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 034
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Saks

Course Description:
The #3 cause of death in the United States after heart disease and cancer is preventable medical error. For each such death, several additional patients suffer severe injuries. We are 11 times more likely to die from a medical accident than from a car accident. The goal of this seminar is to explore, invent, and think hard about what the law could do to reduce those tragic numbers. We will begin by reviewing the history, nature and extent of the problem of medical error and injury, the nature and effects of traditional legal solutions (malpractice liability), and law reforms enacted in the past several decades (aimed mainly at weakening tort law as applied to the healthcare setting). With that as background, we will turn our attention to a search for innovative ideas for solving the problem of iatrogenic injury. What can the law do to help increase patient safety?

Each student will choose an innovative legal policy – possibly something that is currently being done, or experimented with, or under discussion in the U.S. policy world, or in place in another country, or a clever idea you (the student) invent –research it thoroughly, critically evaluate it, and present your findings and conclusions orally to the class and in a written paper.

The semester will be divided into two unequal halves:

I. Readings and discussion of major background topics to acquire a basic understanding of the problem of medical error and the conventional malpractice litigation response.

II. Presentations of and class discussion about your projects in progress.

Course Description:
This class will focus on mergers and acquisitions law, with a particular emphasis not only on applicable legal rules and doctrines but on the practical aspects of structuring, negotiating and memorializing transactions. To this end, the course will rely heavily on in-class simulations of the transactional lawyer’s role in the deal-making process.

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. For this reason, evaluation of the student performance will be based in part on participation. 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. The instructors intend to give appropriate weight in grading to unexcused absence, tardiness, inadequate preparation, and poor class performance. Withdrawal for excessive absence will be recorded as a failing grade or as a withdrawal, at the instructors’ discretion.

National Security Law

SLN #: 12786
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 009
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Gordon

Course Description:
This is a course on national security law. While national security law can cover a wide range of subjects, we will focus on the legal issues that arise in protecting the United States from undue and improper foreign interference. These may range from traditional notions of invasion by foreign countries to disrupting elections to terrorist activities by non-nation states to cyber-attacks from unknown sources.

One of the key distinctions between national security issues and traditional criminal law is that national security is about collecting intelligence and using it to disrupt improper foreign activities before they occur as opposed to apprehending and convicting people after a crime occurs. This raises significant civil rights, due process and privacy issues which we will also explore.

We will also examine the distribution of power between the branches of government regarding national security. What is the President’s proper role and what role should Congress and the Court’s play? We will also look at how protecting our security may impact our relations with other countries and groups. How does immigration policy fit into all of this?

Course Expectations

Your grade in this course will be a function of both class participation and a final paper. There are weekly reading assignments which are set forth below. The text for the course is Stephen Dycus, Arthur Berney, et al. National Security Law, Sixth Edition and the 2019-2020 Supplement for that text. At the time I’m preparing this syllabus, I do not have the supplement. The reading assignments may well change depending on what is in the supplement. I will post any changes at least one week before class. There may also be handouts that I will provide from time to time.

There are no quizzes or exams. There is, however, a final paper. I will ask you to both define what you believe to the most critical national security concern facing the Country and what the legal challenges in addressing that concern are. The paper should be fifteen pages long. The paper is due by the last day of exams, Friday, May 8.

Neuroscience, Law & Ethics

SLN #: 17298
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 036
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Grey;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.

Public Health Law and Ethics

SLN #: 27321
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.

Real World IP Lawmaking

SLN #: 23881
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 013
Credit Hours: 1
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. The law and policy “soup” these participants stir often yields unexpected — and sometimes, undesirable — results. We will see how and why. Intellectual property law aside, this course will teach lessons that can be cross-applied to other subject areas, in law school and thereafter.

There are no prerequisites for this course. Students need no grounding — or intention to pursue further study or a career — in any aspect of intellectual property law, in order to enjoy and learn from the course. Course materials will consist primarily of recent court decisions and news reports; no books or other materials need be purchased.

Reproduction, Reproductive Technologies, and the Law

SLN #: 32675
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 041
Credit Hours: 3
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.

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.

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.
