Criminal Law and Policy Seminar

W. Ball
3 237 Mon and Wed 10:30 am-11:45 am

Certificate(s): Public Interest and Social Justice Law

SAWR possible

To enroll in this course, contact the professor.  This year the focus is on the legal and policy implications of the existing money bail system in California. Students will be working closely with the ACLU-NorCal. In addition to a primary focus on bail, the class will also explore legal and policy implications of a criminal justice system that seeks to extract resources from the poor people who get caught up in it. This would allow interested students to explore issues related to asset forfeiture, restitution payments, drug offenders’ inability to access government benefits, and the ways in which family visits have been monetized.  Will involve physically going to the courthouse and observing how bail decisions are made, comparing (and coding) the results with the case files (and any case law) to determine whether there are individualized determinations being made (as is required) or whether the bail schedules are a de facto (if not de jure) amount for all/some/most/many/a few defendants.  Students might go to neighboring counties to record bail determinations in action, and even in counties with robust pretrial programs.  Students will do comparative research, including:  Are bail schedules set according to median income?  What are the variations in bail schedules for given offenses across California?  What other states use bail bonds? What are the alternatives to bail bonds?  How can the harms of bail bonds be mitigated short of outlawing them?  Who, exactly, is counted in the “unsentenced” portion of California jails?  Are there people who make bail who, nevertheless, are disadvantaged by it?  Are their other economic losses not counted by focusing solely on those who didn’t make bail? How often are judges following the recommendations of the RA?  What happens when the RA isn’t followed?  How might we shift burdens of proof or presumptions about pretrial release? Could these procedural solutions achieve the same results as more substantive changes?  How has the presumption of release in the federal system worked in practice in terms of failure to appear rates?

Certificate(s): High Tech Law - International Specialization Only International Law

In an interdependent, globalized economy, knowledge and understanding of the way in which business is conducted across national borders is indispensable to all business lawyers. In this course, we touch upon substantive law in areas as diverse as commercial transactions and the uniform commercial code, antitrust, intellectual property, conflict of laws, civil procedure, contracts, bankruptcy, taxation, and international law.

We will study the legal bases of jurisdiction a state has to exercise control over other foreign states, their firms and agents, and foreign nationals. Therefore, as should be evident, this course has tremendous practical application for future attorneys whose ‘domestic’ practices increasingly require counseling clients on issues of international or foreign law and/or representing clients in transnational dispute resolution proceedings (i.e., international arbitration).

Given the interactive nature of this class, attendance is mandatory, and class size is limited. Any student that is interested in the class must attend the first day. Method of Evaluation: Seminar participation and short reflection papers.
