Administrative Law

D. Glancy
3 Online Mon & Wed 2:40 pm-3:55 pm 11/30-12/11

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.

The Business, Law, Technology, and Policy of Artificial Intelligence

C. Chien
3 Online Tuesdays & Thursdays 4:10 pm-5:25 pm

Certificate(s): High Tech Law

CHANGE MADE 6/9/20:  THE TIME FOR THIS CLASS HAS CHANGED TO 4:10 – 5:25

Predictive algorithms, autonomous robots, and related technologies are increasingly being used to carry out tasks that once were exclusively performed by humans, whether in the administration or enforcement of the law, operation of business, or governance of the public. The class will focus on the challenges and opportunities for the legal profession created by these changes, through the lens of the business and technology of artificial intelligence. Through assigned readings and individual and group problem sets, simulations, and engagement with local experts in AI, robotics, and neural engineering, we will examine questions pertaining to inequality, race, accountability, privacy, personal liberty, ethics and transparency by engaging with challenges to the laws of intellectual property, liability, compliance, and privacy. No technical background required but participants will code their own chatbots and gain other relevant technical experiences. A select group of students in the class will work closely with Professor Chien on tech and social justice and automation in lieu of doing a final paper or exam.  Approved IP LLM course.
