Business Organizations

SLN #: 11413
Course Prefix: LAW-654
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Gubler
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.

Business Organizations

SLN #: 18217

Course Section: 002
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Gubler
Course Books: View List of Books

Course Description:
This course examines the legal constraints that apply to business organizations with an emphasis on how the law addresses the problem of the separation of ownership from control in publicly held corporations. Alternatives to the corporate form, including partnership and the limited liability company, will also be addressed, although primarily as a comparative tool for achieving a more in- depth understanding of the corporation. Topics will include fiduciary law, shareholder voting, derivative suits, executive compensation and control transactions. These issues will be most relevant to those students who plan on representing business entities in transactions or litigation, however, it is difficult to overstate the importance of a general knowledge of these topics regardless of the area of law in which one plans to practice. Materials to be announced. No background in business, accounting or finance is required.

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

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!

Cults & Alt Religions

Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Demaine
Course Books: View List of Books

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.

Instructor(s): Singleton

Course Description:
The advent of eDiscovery has had an extraordinary impact on American jurisprudence. The unbridled proliferation of e-mail and other forms of electronically stored information (“ESI”) has proved daunting to litigants, counsel and the courts. ESI has eclipsed other forms of evidence and has required a radical change in how disputes are litigated and resolved. Recent eDiscovery amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the rules of many states, including Arizona, are a testament to the judiciary’s recognition of the growing importance of eDiscovery in our judicial system. This course will address the rapidly developing eDiscovery case law and tackle the challenging issues arising from the emerging eDiscovery phenomenon. Subject areas covered will include a survey of relevant information technology, ESI preservation obligations, search and retrieval, ESI production methods, spoliation and sanctions, attorney-client privilege and ethical issues, and admissibility of digital evidence.

Course Description:
Evidence covers the basic rules that govern the admissibility of evidence in civil and criminal trial proceedings. The primary focus is on how the Federal Rules of Evidence operate in practice, with some attention to areas in which the Arizona Rules of Evidence differ from the Federal Rules. 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.

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.

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.

Federalism provides the legal and cultural frameworks for these debates. This class will explore federalism’s foundations, its law, and its application to contemporary problems and politics. We will examine the interplay between the structure of federalism and individual rights. And we will assess federalism’s evolving—but also foundational—role in debates over race and inequality.

Health Insurance Reform

SLN #: 13144
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 018
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Michaels
Course Books: View List of Books

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 in the U.S. is to occur under the current health care financing system. The course captures the very dynamic changes occurring in this area of health law.

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 as a result of judicial determinations or Executive Branch policy following the recent national elections. As part of the examination of the health insurance markets, the health insurer response to the COVID-19 pandemic will be reviewed.

The use of private insurers to provide coverage to Medicare beneficiaries, including the Medicare Advantage Part C and Medicare Part D Programs will be analyzed. In addition, the course will assess managed care plans engaged by State Medicaid Programs. This will include Arizona’s longstanding managed Medicaid Program known as “AHCCCS.”

The impact of prescription drug prices on health insurance premiums will be addressed. This includes efforts by health insurers to manage these costs, as well as state and federal law initiatives that attempt to control prescription drug prices.

Evolving changes in provider payment systems utilized by health insurers will be identified along with the dramatic shift away from the traditional fee-for-service model to payment innovations focused on quality outcomes and cost efficiencies. How will these 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 issue of financial engagement and the challenge of underinsurance, 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.

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.

Course Description:
Innovative New International Business Transactions Course

An innovative new course on U.S. regulation of International Business Transactions (IBT) -- featuring leading U.S. government officials and experts -- has been specially opened to all JD and LLM students for Spring 2020. This course will be of particular interest to students who want to learn about, and potentially work on, how the U.S. can and does use law to promote environmental, human rights, health, national security, foreign policy, cyber security, intellectual property, and other policy objectives in foreign countries.

The U.S. government's newly aggressive regulation of international business transactions, for these and other policy reasons, has made this a field in which U.S. and foreign companies are hiring tens of thousands of attorneys and other risk and compliance management professionals. The U.S. government is also hiring in this field.

As part of enforcing these new laws, the U.S. government has imposed billions of dollars in fines on U.S. and foreign companies. Such companies are vastly increasing their hiring of attorneys in this arena both to avoid further penalties and under pressure from various non-governmental advocates in the growing corporate social responsibility movement.

The course will be taught by Professor Orde Kittrie, an expert on these topics, on Thursdays from Washington, DC. The DC venue will facilitate guest presentations by several of the U.S.’s top officials and leading practitioners in this arena, including persons who have led these issues for the U.S. Departments of Commerce, Justice, State, and Treasury. The course will be taught from noon until 2:55 pm Arizona time (2 pm until 4:55 pm DC time) on Thursdays.

The course will address U.S. laws on specific issues including the following:
-- U.S. trade restrictions designed to promote health, product safety, child labor, and environmental protections overseas;
-- U.S. laws designed to prevent the current theft by U.S. adversaries of hundreds of billions of dollars a year in U.S. private sector intellectual property;
-- U.S. efforts to fight overseas corruption and human rights abuses;
-- U.S. financial penalties on companies transacting with state sponsors of terrorism;
-- U.S. laws allowing lawsuits against overseas abusers; and
-- U.S. export controls aimed at preventing adversary nations from acquiring U.S. weapons and other cutting-edge technologies.

The course will also address more broadly and conceptually the power of U.S. regulators, the incentive to overseas producers of access to the vast U.S. market, and the work of the corporate social responsibility movement, to promote desired changes around the world.

Professor Kittrie would be delighted to answer any questions you might have about this exciting new course. He can be reached at orde.kittrie@asu.edu.

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.

Law, Litigation & Science

SLN #: 18250
Course Prefix: LAW-633
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Saks
Course Books: View List of Books

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 #: 14480
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 027
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Cohen
Course Books: View List of Books

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.

Medical Error: The Next Generation of Law

SLN #: 16492
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 030
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Saks
Course Books: View List of Books

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.

Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Grey;Robert
Course Books: View List of Books

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.

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

Course Description:
Patent Law is a pre-requisite for this class

Appellate work at the United States Patent and Trademark Office is a vital part of patent prosecution. Appeals at the USPTO are decided by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. This course provides an experiential course where students are given an actual patent application from Hewlett Packard, a fortune 500 company with headquarters in Silicon Valley, that stands rejected on a final rejection. Students take that patent application and develop a strategy for advancing the case along with writing a Pre-Appeal Brief, an Appeal Brief, draft an Answer from the USPTO Examiner, and perform a simulated Oral Argument in a mock-trial setting. In addition to receiving feedback from the Professor on each assignment, students receive the actual documents that HP submitted in the case during the appellate process for review. The goal of the course is to give students a practical working knowledge of the USPTO Appeals process while prosecuting patents. Patent Law is a prerequisite for this course. This course is a great way to learn persuasive patent advocacy skills for patent prosecution that are applicable to patent litigation as well.

Public Health Law and Ethics

SLN #: 24281
Course Prefix: LAW-651
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Hodge Jr.
Course Books: View List of Books

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.

Credit Hours: 1
Instructor(s): Halaby
Course Books: View List of Books

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.

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.

Course Description:
With the increasing importance of intellectual property, companies must take appropriate steps to protect and maintain their valuable intellectual property. Much of those efforts must arise in the area encompassed by the intersection between intellectual property law and employment law. Proper use of trade secrets and restrictive covenants prevents unfair competition and allows employers to protect their valuable intellectual property, while still providing for mobility in the workplace. This course will consider the law of trade secrets, focusing on the principles set forth in the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, the Restatement (Second) of Torts, and the Restatement (Third) of Unfair Competition. The second portion of the class will focus on the law of restrictive covenants, with an emphasis on Arizona case law and principles.

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.

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.
