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.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

C. Marshall
3 202 Mon 1:10 p.m.-3:40 p.m.

Certificate(s): Public Interest and Social Justice Law

Professional Skills Course

Experiential Course

This course is a survey of dispute resolution options, focusing particularly on those processes that provide alternatives to traditional litigation and trial. Students will consider negotiation, mediation, collaborative decision-making, with or without a facilitator, and binding and non-binding arbitration.  The course will include consideration of the nature of conflict, its essential elements, how and why conflict arises, factors that cause it to escalate and de-escalate, circumstances under which it is likely to be resolved or persist, and the various situations in which conflict and the need to effectively resolve or manage it might arise in legal practice. Having explored the underpinnings of dispute resolution for lawyers, students will go on to gain familiarity with the various dispute resolution options available to them and the skills they will need to both help their clients select the right option and effectively represent their clients’ interests in a particular process.  Students will participate in numerous simulations, extensive group discussion, and verbal and written critical analysis of their own performance and that of their classmates.  In addition to providing students with an overview of the current array of dispute resolution tools available to attorneys and an opportunity to develop necessary skills, this course will provide a solid foundation for those students intending to delve deeper into one or more individual dispute resolution processes by taking courses like Negotiating or Mediation.

This course qualifies as a Professional Skills Course and meets the criteria for designation as a required experiential learning course. Class is limited to 20 students.

International Commercial Arbitration

G. Benton
2 201 Mon 10:20 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

This course provides an overview of international commercial arbitration law and practice. Topics explored include the role of international arbitration in transnational business dispute resolution; the making and recognition of international arbitration agreements; the selection and appointment of the arbitral tribunal; preliminary proceedings, including procedural orders and interim relief; the evidentiary hearing; and the recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards. Particular attention is paid to issues involving the drafting and recognition of arbitration agreements and awards; the role of the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards; and international arbitration rules and “soft law” guidelines and their interplay with national laws and local cultural and legal norms.

This class addresses the issues that arise in international arbitration sequentially on a time-line, starting in the pre-dispute business planning period, focusing significantly on the handling of a dispute, and progressing to award recognition issues. Although we will regularly approach issues from a US international dispute resolution perspective, consideration will be given to civil law, Asian and other practice norms.

Certificate(s): Public Interest and Social Justice Law

Potentially interested in a career in public service, helping to make good public policy and a real difference in people’s lives?  Want to help change the law where it really matters – civil rights, social justice, the environment, Internet privacy, expanding voting opportunities for disenfranchised voters?  This course focuses on both the legislative process where such laws are made and the judicial process where they are interpreted. It will give you the tools you’ll need as a lawyer, whether in the public sector or in private practice, to help you skillfully advocate for and interpret statutes.  If you’re not quite sure whether private law practice is definitely your career path, this course will also help you explore several other career paths for an attorney, while giving you a firm understanding of the lawmaking process and how courts interpret statutes.  Stimulating and impressive guest speakers will be part of the course as well.  Class meets 8/19 through 10/19. Schedule includes Mondays from 7:30 p.m. to 9:10 p.m. and a mandatory fun weekend workshop Friday, 10/18 from 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. and Saturday, 10/19 from 8:30 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m.- 4:30 p.m. Monday meeting dates include: 8/19, 8/26; 9/9, 9/16,9/23, 9/30; 10/7, 10/16 (10/16 is a Wednesday, which is an Administrative Monday).  Come join us for a spirited exploration of the “other branch of government” that you will find useful in whatever career journey you ultimately choose to follow.

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

C. Chien
3 205 Mon & Wed 10:30 a.m.-11:45 a.m.

Certificate(s): High Tech Law

Artificial intelligence is transforming the way that companies and organizations operate and do business. Self-learning algorithms, autonomous robots, and related technologies are increasingly carrying out tasks that once were exclusively performed by humans, creating new challenges and opportunities for the legal profession. This class will explore the business, technology, and law of artificial intelligence through assigned readings and individual and group problem sets, discussion, field trips, and engagement with local experts in AI, robotics, and neural engineering. For about 1/3 of the weeks, we will only meet once (and therefore will have a consolidated class) to support outside speakers and related special events. Some of these consolidated classes will run through the lunch hour on Monday (off-schedule classes  will be taped to accommodate students with conflicts). 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.
