Administrative Law

D. Glancy
3 205 Tues & Thurs 1:10 pm-2:25 pm May 04, 2021 9:00 am

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.  This course is graded with a final examination.

Criminal Law and Policy

W. Ball
3 210 Mon & Wed 10:30 am-11:45 am May 09, 2022 9:00 am

Certificate(s): Public Interest and Social Justice Law

This year my criminal law and policy seminar focuses on an issue that is particularly relevant to Santa Clara: campus safety. As with my past courses on marijuana legalization and ending money bail, both of which resulted in statewide policy changes, the goal for this class is for students to produce work that informs campus administrators both locally and nationally. This will not be a passive class where you just absorb what I know. I will be teaching you how to approach a legal and policy problem as complex as this (based on my past experiences and my policy networks), and you, through your research and writing posted on the class blog, will be teaching me and others what we should do about it. I don’t claim to have all the answers. I want to go where the evidence takes us.
 
Here are some of the questions I think we will want to answer–though figuring out what all the relevant questions are is also part of the class. First, what do we mean by safety–and how do we account for the potential harms (“unsafety”) created by the operations of campus safety itself, particularly as relates to BIPOC faculty, staff, students, and members of the surrounding community? How are the safety issues of university campuses different from those of similarly sized cities and towns (if at all)? Can we borrow from police governance in places, and, if so, where, and, if not, why not? How are campus safety officers different from police–and how should they be different? What are examples of effective campus safety policies, programs, and governance nationally? What are the best models for community input and shared governance? How should universities handle complaints? How should universities handle officer discipline? How can we ensure that campus safety is a part of the community, not apart from it?

If you are interested in the class, please come see me for permission to take it. I do this to ensure that it will be a good fit, and that, primarily, means that you are interested in improving your research, writing, and policy-making skills and that you will put in the time and effort to make that happen. If you devote the energy to it, you will get a public, google-able set of writing samples and, based on past student evaluations, a profoundly meaningful part of your professional development. 

In order to register for this course, please email Prof. David Ball (WBall@scu.edu)  for a permission number.

Environmental Law in a Practice Setting

J. Cruden, D. Sandino
2 205 See notes See notes-

This 2-credit course provides an in-depth examination of a set of narrow issues that arise within the practice of environmental law, such as in climate change regulations in California, land use law practice, toxic torts, water regulation, environmental impact assessment under NEPA and CEQA, and environmental due diligence in real estate transactions.  The course should be taken by anybody who plans to make environmental or energy law the focus of their career as well as anybody with plans for a general business law practices (since the issues and skills covered in the course will arise in those general business law practice settings).  The course objectives are to:  1) familiarize students in-depth and with a relatively narrow focus on a select set of the most common environmental law practice issues that private firm and government lawyers deal with, 2) teach particular skills, such as client counseling, negotiation or drafting of a complaint or a comment letter, utilized by practitioners to address those issues, and 3) directly expose students to practitioners in the field.  The course is not a replacement for taking the environmental protection law survey course, but should be taken ideally concurrently with or after the environmental law survey course.  However, environmental law is not a prerequisite.   Course meets on the following dates: 

Friday, February 4, 6:00-8:15 pm
Saturday, February 5, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Saturday, February 6, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Examination of discrimination and privilege based on sex.

The Land Use Law Seminar provides a unique opportunity to study how local governments regulate the use of land through planning, zoning, subdivision regulation and other controls.  In other words, this seminar is about local environmental law. Legal regulation of both private and public uses of land in urban, suburban, exurban and rural areas is one focus of the seminar.  Other land use control strategies through nuisance law and private land use arrangements also play a role in local land use control systems.  Primarily looking at California law, the seminar also will explore constitutional issues such as takings and First Amendment freedoms of religion and of expression as they arise in local land use controversies.  Accommodation of potentially conflicting interests of landowners, neighbors, communities, and regional interests causes regulation of transportation and affordable housing especially challenging.  The first reading assignment will be posted on Camino.  The top five students on the wait list should attend the first day.  The course is graded, based on a seminar paper and participation in weekly seminar discussions.

The discussions will draw on film theory and film-making technique to deepen understanding of the interrelationship between law and popular culture. The discussions illuminate the ways in which pop culture products both reflect and change social views about law and lawyers.

Experiential Course.  Approved IP LLM course.  Pre-requisite: Business Organizations (248).  

The best startup General Counsel and legal advisors bring a highly practical approach to addressing the legal issues a company faces.  In this course, we do too.  We will spend time in two-week modules focusing on the issues and scenarios common to every startup:  Nondisclosure Agreements; Collaborating with other companies to innovate;  Founding the startup and addressing key legal/stock issues among the founders; raising Venture Capital to finance the startup; employment law issues; and Mergers and Acquisitions (the most common “exit” scenario for startups).  During each two-week module, we will use readings and class discussion to learn the key concepts and then apply them to a practical project (e.g. mock negotiation, opening statement in an employment arbitration, etc).  We also intersperse two class sessions for practice exam questions and group discussion to help review and reinforce what we covered in prior modules. Because so much of the learning happens in the discussion and in-class projects, attendance is required and class participation is a component of your grade.  There is also a final exam.

Public Interest and Social Justice Practice : Criminalizing Homelessness

M. Bennett, M. Oberman
2 326 Thursday 4:10 pm-5:50 pm

Certificate(s): Public Interest and Social Justice Law

This two-credit experiential learning class takes on Santa Clara County’s current legal and policy responses to homelessness. Working with lawyers from the Santa Clara County Public Defender’s Office, along with the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley’s experts in housing and mental health, we will target our County’s current responses to homelessness, with particular attention to the costly ways in which we are using the criminal legal system. Aligning our work with advocates working with the unhoused, as well as with experts from our own campus, we will mount an initiative that promotes alternative short-term responses to these challenges. Our work product will provide a foundation for engaging the relevant local stakeholders to work toward a more rational allocation of resources. At the end of the semester, we will be presenting our work product to a broad coalition of these stakeholders and decision-makers.

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

This seminar will provide an introduction to the theory and practices of restorative justice, a centuries-old approach to dispute resolution that emphasizes repairing harms by bringing together victims, offenders, their respective communities, and other stakeholders in a common quest for truth, healing and reconciliation. In recent years, restorative justice has emerged as a prominent alternative intersecting with the legal systems domestically and internationally. Restorative justice programs exist in prisons, courts, schools, and many other settings. Students will learn the theory and practical skills of restorative justice in both real-world contexts and through in-class exercises.  Active preparation for and engagement in the weekly sessions are essential. A course project and final paper are required. 

Please note that there are required sessions on two Saturdays to allow time for restorative justice training and presentation of final projects:
January 22 from 10 am to 4 pm (training)
April 23 from 10 am to 4 pm

Selected Topics in Anti-discrimination Law

N. Serafin
3 316 Mon & Wed 1:10 pm-2:25 pm

Certificate(s): Public Interest and Social Justice Law

In this seminar we will explore the concept of discrimination in case law, philosophy and legal theory.  We will investigate some of the main concepts that crop up in contemporary anti-discrimination law and its associated literature. That includes the concept of discrimination itself. We will also investigate some of the possible rationales for having anti-discrimination laws, with a view to seeing what implications those rationales might have for doctrine and policy.  We will also discuss the doctrinal frameworks in several key areas of antidiscrimination law and will discuss how these frameworks have applied to different types of discrimination, including discrimination based on race, sex, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation.

Statutory Analysis

E. Wright
3 202 Mon & Wed 10:30 am-11:45 am May 09, 2022 1:30 pm

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

The purpose of this course is to give you an introduction to statutory interpretation- a skill that you will need to use throughout your legal career.  The required text for the class is Jane Ginsburgs & David Louk, Legal Methods: Cases & Materials 5th Ed. 2020 . If you have trouble getting the text prior to class, please let me know at your earliest convenience.  From time to time, I will supplement our text with my own handouts (which will mostly be posted on Camino). Note: None of the handouts have been posted at this time.

I will be breaking the class into Law Firms for purpose of class participation. The Law Firms should be no fewer than two students or greater than four. I will provide a sign up sheet during the first class.

Grading in the class will be based on two factors: First, participation in the course, including both participation in class and within your Law Firm. Second, a take home exam will be given out shortly after Spring Break and will be due approximately two weeks later.

The take home exam will involve a “closed universe of materials” (i.e. , no research!) and you will be able to discuss the exam with any member of the class but with no one else. However, you will be required to submit your own exam answer.

Tax Policy and Social Justice

P. Cain
2 Online (201) Tues & Thurs 1:10 pm-2:25 pm

Certificate(s): Public Interest and Social Justice Law

This is a policy course and not a tax course. The course will focus on ways in which the Code is accused of being discriminatory on the basis of race, gender, and sexual orientation. No course in tax law is required as a prerequisite.

The course will focus on a number of tax provisions in the current Internal Revenue Code and highlight how those provision reflect (or do not reflect) national concerns about social justice. You may learn some tax law simply because of this focus, but the priority in this course is for you to understand how special tax rules reflect overall social policy. Specific areas of focus will include how the tax code treats home ownership, how it treats marriage, and how it discriminates against workers compared with owners of capital.

The final grade will be based on a paper in which you will be asked to briefly address a policy question of your choice and to make a proposal for change, as well as on your performance in presenting that paper. The paper should be addressed either to a legislative body or administrative body, depending on what your proposed change is. Students will present their proposals to the class during the last two class sessions.

This class is scheduled as a three hour course (i.e., 150 minutes a week) but since it is only for 2 hours of credit, it will meet for only the first 9 weeks of the semester. That will give you the last 5 weeks of the semester to complete the paper for the course, which will be due on the last class day of the semester.

K. Jacobsen, M. Galloway
3 210 Tuesday 5:40 pm-8:10 pm

Certificate(s): High Tech Law

Experiential Course

This course will blend substantive legal knowledge with the practical application of skills attorneys need to effectively present complex information to others, such as clients, other attorneys, judges, and juries. The course emphasizes skills such as the analysis of a factual record and assessment of expert witness opinions. It will be of particular interest to students who plan to practice in areas that commonly involve expert witnesses and/or complex information, such as IP transactions, patent litigation, regulatory work (e.g., drafting/interpreting regulations or legislation), consumer/tort litigation, securities litigation, corporate litigation, and cases involving economic damages.

This course is of general applicability and should be helpful to anyone interested in expert witnesses and strategies lawyers can use for presenting complex information.  The case file used for the simulations concerns trademark infringement and includes expert materials related to liability and damages, but students do not need to have any prior knowledge of trademark law or technology to take the course.  Grades will be based on a variety of written work product and in-class exercises, such as depositions, Daubert motions, and mock court proceedings, and class participation and professionalism.
