14th Amendment

SLN #: 72802
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 002
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Wurman
Course Books: View List of Books

Course Description:
• If you take the survey course then you are welcome to take either or both of the separate courses (1st amendment & 14th amendment)
• If you take one of the separate courses then you should take the other separate course (if that course is not available then you can take the survey course)
• If you have taken both the separate courses then you may not take the survey course.

This course will focus on the rights secured by the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution, taking a more historical approach. The class will start in the year 1215, with Magna Charta, and explore historical notions of “due process of law,” “protection of the laws,” and “privileges and immunities” of citizenship, relying on early political history, antebellum legal doctrines, and even some political philosophy. The course will then address the problems confronting the framers of the Fourteenth Amendment: whether free blacks were “citizens of the United States” within the meaning of the Constitution; the problem of mob rule; and the abridgement of rights in the infamous black codes. The remainder (and bulk) of the course will then explore how the Supreme Court has interpreted the three key provisions of the Fourteenth Amendment—the due process, equal protection, and privileges or immunities clauses—from 1873 to the present day.

Course Books: View List of Books

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.

Instructor(s): Huber

Course Description:
NOTE: This course is limited to students admitted to the Washington DC Program. The class will be held in the ASU Barrett & O'Connor Washington Center in DC.

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

Course Prefix: LAW-654
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Forst
Course Books: View List of Books

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.

Debtor/Creditor & Bankruptcy Law

SLN #: 82661
Course Prefix: LAW-653
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Magnuson
Course Books: View List of Books

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.

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. Unlike courses that are based on common law, this course will require students to study statutory and administrative law extensively. 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.

Course Books: View List of Books

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.

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.

Instructor(s): Deatherage
Course Books: View List of Books

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.

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

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.

SLN #: 76831

Course Section: 010
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Winarski
Course Books: View List of Books

Course Description:
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 70% on the final 30% on in class participation.

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.

Private Property Rights

SLN #: 82590
Course Prefix: LAW-657
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Claus;Cloar;Patel
Course Books: View List of Books

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.

Instructor(s): Sapp
Course Books: View List of Books

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 #: 82645
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 011
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Charlton
Course Books: View List of Books

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.

Instructor(s): Reed
Course Books: View List of Books

Course Description:
Intellectual property is an area of law that has deep attachments to our beliefs about human potential— particularly what kinds of creativity and innovation merit property rights and how those rights should be distributed within society. In recent decades, IP has emerged as a key space in which negotiations over social, political and economic power take place. As with other critical studies of law, studying the operation of intellectual property law reveals how power functions within society, including how inequalities and biases are reinforced as they become incorporated into legal doctrines and dispute resolution mechanisms. Specifically, a critical approach to IP law uniquely shows us shows how the law values particular bodies and their intellectual contributions as creative, inventive, distinctive, or secret, while for others it may not. In this course we will examine cases, legislative histories, and fresh research from several areas of intellectual property—copyright, patent, trademark, and privacy law—to understand how these modes of owning and circulating knowledge products are influenced by, and in turn influence, social constructions of race. Viewing IP in this way allows us to see it as a potentially rich site of engagement with current and historical crises surrounding race, but also as a site of productive possibility for remediating inequality going forward.

Course Books: View List of Books

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.

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 #: 94701
Course Prefix: LAW-728
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Goddard;Segal
Course Books: View List of Books

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.

Instructor(s): Garber
Course Books: View List of Books

Course Description:
NOTE: This course is limited to students admitted to the Washington DC Program. The class will be held in the ASU Barrett & O'Connor Washington Center in DC.

Recent elections in the United States have been the subject of fraud and manipulation allegations that are usually associated with elections overseas. As a result, much needed attention is being placed on a range of potential reforms to the “systems” for electing government officials, to the legal framework for elections, to the use of technology for election administration, and to the conduct of election campaigns. At the same time, elections overseas continue to draw considerable attention as harbingers of populist discontent, illiberal democracy, provokers of conflict and instability, even as many elections occur in environments where the electorate lacks confidence in the legal framework and the election administrators.

This course will address these issues by focusing first on the evolution of election law in the United States from the birth of the Republic through the 2018 mid-terms. The course will then shift to the international setting, reviewing various international instruments, the role of international observers and examining several controversial elections that have occurred during the past three decades. The closing section of the course will focus on several contemporary challenges, including the role of technology and the rise of electoral populism. And throughout the course, we will follow the legal administrative issues that emerge in the context of the unfolding 2020 elections in the United States and what lessons the United States might learn from the conduct of elections in other countries.

Course Description:
Writing Assistants work closely with the Legal Writing Professor to whom they are assigned and provide guidance and mentoring to first-year students. Writing Assistants help with problem selection and generating model answers, hold office hours to assist first-year students with research, help create and grade research and citation exercises, occasionally help with class preparation and/or presentation, and assist with oral argument in the spring. Writing Assistants generally do not play a major role in teaching and grading first-year students. Writing Assistants are expected to attend the Legal Research and Writing Course to which they are assigned and meet with the Professor weekly. Writing Assistants are expected to be available to first-year students and to work well without intensive supervision. Writing Assistants can expect to spend an average of six to eight hours a week fulfilling their duties, although this may vary from week to week. Writing Assistants receive 2 Pass/Fail credit hours each semester (for a total of 4 credit hours). Some positions are for the year; others are for one semester only, depending upon the professor's teaching schedule.
