Instructor(s): Shah

Course Description:
This seminar will examine––from a constitutional and rule-of- law perspective––central features of the modern administrative state, including as characterized by some of its strongest critics.

14th Amendment

SLN #: 72609
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 001
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 Description:
Administrative agencies regulate the vast majority of our lives from birth to death (and taxes). They directly influence the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, the land we live on, and the money we spend. While a course called “Administrative Agencies and Regulation” may not sound intriguing to the casual observer, we will spend the semester analyzing some of the most controversial issues of our time. We will begin with an accelerated introduction to federal administrative agencies, the sources and boundaries of their authority, and options for redress for parties aggrieved by administrative actions. We will also briefly examine state administrative agencies in the same light. We will apply the principals that we learn to in-depth analysis of a few modern administrative law controversies including, but not limited to the Federal Communications Commission and net neutrality and the controversies surrounding the Affordable Care Act. Throughout the course, we will apply the principals we learn to analysis of current events. The primary learning objective of the class is to provide you with the tools to analyze administrative agencies and their regulatory actions as they impact you in your life and career. While many of the topics we will address are politically charged, we will focus on a principled analysis of each topic without embracing or advocating a specific political or philosophical perspective.

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

Course Description:
Antitrust Law (or competition law, as it is known outside the United States) represents the most basic form of economic regulation in market-oriented national economic systems. These laws regulate business relationships between competitors, the range of permissible conduct by large or dominant firms, and relationships between firms at different levels in the chain of distribution, all ostensibly to protect consumers. Potential offenses include monopolization, collusion and other agreements (including mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures) in restraint of trade. In recent years, the antitrust laws have become particularly important in industries involving health care, network technologies, the extensive use of intellectual property and generally the question of concentration by the likes of Amazon and Facebook. After an extended time of modest antitrust activity, one of the central questions faced by the new administration is the extent to which it will embrace “hipster antitrust” to these new challenges. This course will explore all these issues.

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.

Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Jones
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.

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.

Do you have an interest in being an in-house lawyer? The knowledge and skills required to work as a corporate counsel are different than practicing at a law firm or in other opportunities. In this course, we’ll explore how to be an effective in-house counsel and provide practical advice to the company. Topics covered will include: the role of an in-house legal department in a company, corporate governance, managing outside counsel, partnering with other departments, advising on various areas of law, risk management, ethics, and in-house career paths. This course is relevant to students, whether or not they are considering in-house practice--lawyers in private practice often work with in-house counsel, and can be more effective if they have a good understanding of the challenges facing their in-house clients.

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.

Divorce & Family Mediation - Masters

SLN #: 82972
Course Prefix: SDO-598

Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Aurit
Course Books: View List of Books

Course Description:
Being a professional family mediator is extraordinary. At our best, we are as skilled as surgeons, and our work can be just as critical. Our mindful techniques and artistic strategies are employed with precision to help families manage and resolve family conflict by reaching agreements. The foundational structure of mediation is grounded in our core values, guidelines, and process boundaries. Family mediators willingly enter and move to the center of conflictual family systems with the goal of helping them solve problems and find their best possible agreements. We continuously consider ethical issues as we work with spouses/parents on the front lines of conflict. Our skills allow us to acknowledge and work with the conflict rather than confronting or resisting it. Research conclusively shows that conflict between parents during and after divorce causes long-term emotional issues in children. The spouses themselves also experience conflict-related trauma. Family mediation is the most effective intervention to help prevent, reduce and resolve conflict at the critical juncture of divorce. The highest level of care is required because there will almost always be some continuing relationship between the spouses, parents, and/or other family members. Divorce is personal, and the stakes are at their highest. If you are intrigued by mediation, you are going to love this course. This is your opportunity to understand mediation in a deeper way than you have imagined. We will illuminate the elusive and essential skills required to practice effective divorce and family mediation. Go all-in with your efforts and take risks! You will learn about the very essence of the family mediator, explore the structure of family mediation, and effective qualities and attitudes. Essential mediator techniques will be explained and you will learn to use foundational and advanced mediator strategies. This course will also address ethical challenges and special circumstances in mediation.

Divorce & Family Mediation - Masters

Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Aurit

Course Description:
Being a professional family mediator is extraordinary. At our best, we are as skilled as surgeons, and our work can be just as critical. Our mindful techniques and artistic strategies are employed with precision to help families manage and resolve family conflict by reaching agreements. The foundational structure of mediation is grounded in our core values, guidelines, and process boundaries. Family mediators willingly enter and move to the center of conflictual family systems with the goal of helping them solve problems and find their best possible agreements. We continuously consider ethical issues as we work with spouses/parents on the front lines of conflict. Our skills allow us to acknowledge and work with the conflict rather than confronting or resisting it. Research conclusively shows that conflict between parents during and after divorce causes long-term emotional issues in children. The spouses themselves also experience conflict-related trauma. Family mediation is the most effective intervention to help prevent, reduce and resolve conflict at the critical juncture of divorce. The highest level of care is required because there will almost always be some continuing relationship between the spouses, parents, and/or other family members. Divorce is personal, and the stakes are at their highest. If you are intrigued by mediation, you are going to love this course. This is your opportunity to understand mediation in a deeper way than you have imagined. We will illuminate the elusive and essential skills required to practice effective divorce and family mediation. Go all-in with your efforts and take risks! You will learn about the very essence of the family mediator, explore the structure of family mediation, and effective qualities and attitudes. Essential mediator techniques will be explained and you will learn to use foundational and advanced mediator strategies.

In so doing, the topics will be introduced through an overview provided for by the textbook chapters accompanied by case studies which will provide real world examples of conflicts which can arise and how the courts/agencies have dealt with the conflicts. Our discussions will center upon recognition of how the conflicts arose, how the laws are applied, and how with hindsight the parties may have avoided the conflict or resolved it without litigation.

Course Description:
Students will examine energy law in the United States, with a focus on law and policy in an era of renewable energy portfolio standards, energy efficiency mandates and greenhouse gas emissions reductions regimes for electric and natural gas utilities. Since energy sustainability laws and regulatory policies are largely imposed on and carried out by utilities, the course will begin with an examination of the fundamentals of utility regulation. Students will be exposed to the traditional means of regulating energy at the federal level, and will examine wholesale energy markets as they have been implemented by Regional Transmission Organizations, as well as restricted energy markets in which states have engaged in retail energy competition. Finally, the course will address new and emerging trends in energy law, including a discussion of transmission policies promoting renewable energy development, federal and state efforts on Demand Response and the Smart Grid, and the regulation of greenhouse gasses, including proposed federal climate change legislation and a discussion of the EPA’s most recent rulemaking on carbon, the Clean Power Plan.

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.

Instructor(s):
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

**No course prerequisite required to take this 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 Fall 2021. 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 Wednesdays in Washington, DC. The DC venue will facilitate guest presentations by several of the U.S.’s top officials and leading practitioners in this arena. The course will be taught from 1:30 pm until 4:20 pm on Wednesdays.

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.

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.

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. This course qualifies as a “core course” for the LS&I Certificate program.

Furthermore, class discussions will also cover effective and efficient use of attorneys, both internal to a firm and at external law firms. Various substantive topics will be covered in this survey course, with a focus on applying the basic legal principles covered via court decisions and other reading assignments. A basic understanding of “black letter law” will be important, but this is not a course that will ask MLS students to provide the same level of nuanced legal analysis as would be asked of law students. Instead, merging business acumen and legal analysis will be valued above a depth of legal understanding.

Readings and guest speakers will focus on advanced and problem-focused discussion of such topics as Congressional powers, legislative process (including the functions of legislative committees), relevant ethics issues (including the regulation of lobbying), Presidential vetoes and signing statements, statutory interpretation, as well as case studies in successful legislative advocacy campaigns.

Students will be required to draft a set of written materials which will include a final paper containing analysis of a problem susceptible to being addressed by legislation, discussion of potential legislative options for addressing it, selection of a preferred option, and strategies for advocacy (including coalition-building and media). Students may also be required to draft and submit some or all of the following: proposed statutory language; draft legislative history (report language, colloquies, Congressional Record statements); talking points; fact sheets; and testimony.

Instructor(s): Miner

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.

Course Section: 011
Credit Hours: 4
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 #: 81074
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): Grey
Course Books: View List of Books

Course Description:
Products Liability refers to civil liability for injuries caused by defective products. It occupies a central role in American law, as the number of new products used by consumers has increased exponentially. Accompanying this proliferation of new consumer products is an increase in injuries. It has been estimated that the number of product accidents is approximately 50 million a year. Products liability is a major way that our society attempts to moderate undue risks. Products liability mixes tort law (negligence, strict liability and deceit) and contract law (warranty) as well as common law (mostly tort) and statutory law (from the UCC). This seminar will trace the development of products liability law, and analyze the major issues currently confronting the courts in this area. It will examine the main theories of manufacturer liability, the concept of product defect, and defenses available to the manufacturer. The seminar will also explore problems of proof and remedies, as well as proposed legislative solutions to problems that arise in these areas.

Credit Hours: 3
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.

Reproduction, Reproductive Technologies and the Law

SLN #: 95535

Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Matsumura
Course Books: View List of Books

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.

The Moral Leader

SLN #: 81164
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 017
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Cabot
Course Books: View List of Books

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 #: 88976
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.

Tribal Self-Governance I - Masters

SLN #: 94481
Course Prefix: SDO-598
Course Section: A1101
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Spaan
Course Books: View List of Books

Course Description:
The purpose of this course is to introduce the fundamental concepts and history of tribal self- determination and self-governance. While the course will cover several topics, the central theme will be the relationship between tribal sovereignty, self- determination, self-governance, and effective administration of the Federal programs and services that serve Tribal citizens. It provides a brief overview of federal Indian policy eras and select events that demonstrate how the powers of Tribal Nations that self-governed for thousands of years before the formation of the U.S. were eroded, altered, and, in some instances, restored over time. It also covers select federal programs that serve Tribal Nations and their citizens as well as the basis for these programs. Students will explore the origin, scope, and implementation of the Indian Self- Determination and Education Assistance Act (often referred to as “ISDEAA”). Students will also understand how ISDEAA reshaped the government-to- government relationship between tribal governments and the United States and the evolving roles of tribal governments and the federal government. Additional topics covered include an overview of judicial decisions and federal actions that shaped the implementation of self-determination and self- governance policy, how tribal governments have used self-determination and self-governance to improve the well-being of their citizens and communities, and additional authorities available to tribal governments that can increase tribal control and decision-making authority.

US and Int'l Election Law

SLN #: 89063
Course Prefix: LAW-791
Course Section: 029
Credit Hours: 3
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.

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

Course Description:
Women, Gender, and the Law is a guide to varied theoretical systems in order to analyze and understand the relationship between law and gender. Each system has its own assumptions about gender and about social change, as well as its own goals and strategies. Learning the different systems helps us think more thoroughly and systematically about gender issues and how the law has contended with sexual difference, gender-based stereotypes, and the meaning of equality. The course uses case law and readings in a wide variety of subject matter areas in order to develop the theoretical frameworks, including constitutional law, employment discrimination law, family law, criminal law, education law, reproductive rights, poverty law, and immigration. We will test the applicability of these frameworks in real-life situations, ranging from the military to the Affordable Care Act, rent control, sexual assault, single-sex schools, parenting, and law firm practice. Finally, the course complicates the study of gender by incorporating critical approaches such as queer theory, intersectionality analysis, and masculinities theory.

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.
