Administrative Law

3 207 Tues & Thurs 10:30 a.m.-11:45 a.m. Dec 03, 2021 1:30 pm

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.

Capital Markets and Financial Misconduct Seminar

S. Guan
2 202 Wednesday 2:40 pm-4:20 pm

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

This seminar will focus on contemporary issues in the conceptualization and regulation of misconduct in financial markets. We will explore wrongdoing in U.S. secondary markets for the trading of stocks, bonds, and other financial instruments, markets whose proper functioning facilitates the original offerings of such instruments by businesses seeking new financing. The seminar will begin with an exploration of the social and economic functions served by trading markets, including providing liquidity for investors and incorporating information into prices, which in turn serve as vital guides for the economy. We will also consider how rules and policy shape the ability of these markets to perform such functions. We will then explore issues that arise specifically in the regulation of wrongdoing in these markets, including manipulation, spoofing, high frequency trading, and broker execution quality. We will also consider the impact of technological innovation on the prevalence of and regulation around such activities.   

 

This seminar will be divided into two parts.  The first will consist of assigned readings, occasional short response papers, and in-class discussion.  The second part will entail student-led presentations and discussions, based on topics collectively identified and assigned earlier in the course.

Class will meet on Saturday, September 25th and October 23 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm and from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm.  Attendance on both days is required. Students will learn client counseling techniques and other practical skills through in-class exercises that will be held on both days.  Final grades will be based on (1) completion of all in-class exercises; (2) handing in a 1 to 2 page reflection essay due the morning of the first class; and (3) completion of a short final paper (minimum 6 and no more than 10 pages) addressing a current topic in domestic violence law. Paper topics must be instructor-approved no later than March 21. The paper will be due during the final exam period.

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; its negative impact on victims and children; and its potential for lethality. Ethical DV practice will be discussed within an interdisciplinary context, including law enforcement, mental health, community-based organizations, and court systems. Students will recognize that domestic violence has broad implications beyond criminal and family law, e.g. immigration, child welfare, elder abuse, employment, housing and federal law, especially concerning firearms.

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

Depending on enrollment and number of projects, this course will attempt to engage current and foreseeable controversies in immigration law and policy. As a practicum, students will be participating in live and on-going projects, either as parts of research teams for current or anticipated litigation, or in a “think tank”/policy proposal capacity for local jurisdictions or non-profit organizations. Potential partners include law school clinics, the Asian Law Caucus or other non-profit organizations, and county officials or agencies. Please note that the work is likely to be immigrant-protective/immigrant-advocacy types of projects. Prior experience in immigration law & policy – the survey Immigration Law class, work/enrollment in the immigration clinic at SCU, or other extensive background in immigration – is strongly encouraged; please contact instructor if interested, but do not have this background. Students will be graded on any number of written products that might be collaboratively produced in the course of the semester – research memoranda, white papers, draft legislation, and the like.

NCIP required texts must be purchased before the first day of class through the University bookstore. Readings and other important announcements will be posted on Camino. Work and classes at the Innocence Project provide insight into our criminal justice system and the causes of wrongful conviction. You will receive professional skills training including case management, organization, and development as well as interviewing and counseling skills. You will have the opportunity to develop your legal writing ability through edited work on legal pleadings, professional communications and legal memoranda. These important skills transfer to professional work in law firms and government agencies, as well as criminal law practice.

Note: Students can take a maximum of 6 units of graded credit from any combination of NCIP course credit [i.e., NCIP  and NCIP Advanced Practice Clinic (Catalog numbers 505 and 515)].  Any additional units will be graded on a Credit/No Credit basis only.
