Administrative Law

Certificate(s): Public Interest and Social Justice Law Certificate (List C)

Administrative law deals with government regulation – a crucial aspect of every type of law practice.  The practical focus of the administrative law course is how to work with government agencies and the regulatory law these agencies generate and enforce.  The first part of the course looks at the processes government agencies use to literally create law through rulemaking and adjudication and also engage in investigations and law enforcement.  They operate in areas as diverse as environmental law, national security, communications, foreign affairs, taxation, labor-management relations, and much more.  The second part of the course considers judicial review and how courts impose constraints on government regulation based on constitutional concepts of separation of powers and checks and balances, as well as procedural due process and other constitutionally protected rights.  The course provides grounding in the basics of administrative law which any lawyer who practices law needs to understand.  The first reading assignment in the required text will be posted on Camino.  The top five students on the wait list should attend the first day.  This course is graded with a final examination.

Domestic Violence Minicourse

J. Saffren, E. Hyman
1 135 Sat See notes-See notes

Certificate(s): Public Interest and Social Justice Law (List B)

Class will meet on Saturday,  March 24 and April 7.  Class will meet from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm and from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm on both days.  Students will learn client counseling techniques and other practical skills through in-class exercises. In addition to attending two Saturday classes, students must conduct one 90 minute court watch, observing a DV calendar at either criminal or family court. Final grades will be based on completion of in class exercises, court watch and a short final paper (minimum 6 pages) that addresses a current topic in domestic violence law.

The practice of domestic violence law requires an understanding of legal systems as well as complex social issues. This minicourse begins with an understanding of domestic violence, how it manifests in families and its impact on victims and children. Ethical DV practice will be discussed within an interdisciplinary context, including law enforcement, mental health, community based organizations, and remedies in both criminal and family courts. Students will also see that domestic violence has broad implications for practice beyond criminal and family law, e.g. child welfare, elder abuse, immigration, employment, housing and federal law.

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.

An additional 1-unit “independent study” credit can be earned based on successful completion of a multi-media, annotated legal primer on AI as it pertains to a particular technological area, or substantial progress on a coding project pertaining to AI and the law (social justice projects especially encouraged).    Approved IP LLM course.
