Globalization and The Rule of Law

S. Diamond
2 (ONLINE) Thursday 10:20 am-12:00 pm

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

The neo-liberal ideology known as “globalization” spread by major corporate, financial and state institutions since the end of the Cold War was once considered so stable that the theorist Francis Fukuyama suggested we had reached the “end of history.” But a new threat, rooted in authoritarianism, has arisen to challenge this once dominant political and economic framework. This spring the seminar will examine this new tension between globalization and authoritarian movements and governments. We will explore how law can respond to this new emerging conflict in order to establish a peaceful and democratic world order. We will consider several case studies. Students will be asked to write a research paper on a topic of their choosing related to the themes of the seminar. Grades will be based on the research paper and class participation.

Room 316 is reserved for students to view this class as needed in Charney.

Health Law Seminar: Public Health Law and Ethics

S. Bland
2 210 Tues 4:10 pm-5:50 pm

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

This course explores the roles that the law and legal institutions play in public health. It examines key legal concepts underlying public health agencies’ duties and powers, as well as the legal and ethical underpinnings for public health law and regulation. The course will touch on many areas of law that have implications for public health policy and practice, including criminal law, tort law, administrative law, and constitutional law. Throughout the course, students will learn about public health issues faced by different populations (such as racial/ethnic minority, LGBTQ, immigrant, and rural populations) and explore how laws and policies contribute to population-level health disparities. By spotlighting recent and historical examples of public health law in action, including COVID-19, sexual and reproductive health, opioids, tobacco, obesity, and the environment, this course will be valuable for students interested in health law and equity, as well as students seeking to deepen their expertise in public policy.

Restorative Justice

M. Russell

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

This seminar will provide an introduction to the theories and practices of restorative justice (RJ), a centuries-old approach to dispute resolution. Restorative justice emphasizes repairing harms, both legal and non-legal, based on the concept of the core human dignity of each member of a community.  RJ brings 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 legal systems domestically and internationally. Restorative justice programs exist in prisons, courts, schools, and many other settings. Students will learn the theories and practical skills of restorative justice in both real-world contexts and through in-class discussions.  Active preparation for and engagement in the weekly sessions are essential. A class presentation, short reflection papers on the readings, and final paper are required. 

Please note: This is a 3 unit seminar. In addition to class sessions once a week , students are required to participate in two additional “field” meetings that will be held on two separate weekend days.   These days will be chosen in consultation with class members during the first week of class.

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 anti-discrimination 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.

Spanish for Lawyers

F. Rivera Juaristi, B. Schwartz
1 339 Thursday 2:00 pm-3:20 pm

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

Credit/No Credit

This course would seek to give law students an opportunity to apply existing Spanish language skills to the specific context of legal practice, with an emphasis on client-centered lawyering on behalf of Spanish-speaking clients. The class will introduce students to Spanish legal terminology in common practice areas where lawyers work with LEP Spanish-speaking clients, including immigration and asylum law, employment law, criminal law, and other areas of general civil practice, including housing, family, and consumer protection law. The course will also provide an introduction to the differences between the legal system of most Spanish-speaking countries and the common law legal system of the United States, as well as the practical and ethical considerations faced by lawyers representing clients with limited English proficiency.

Students will engage in simulated class exercises to learn how to use specialized legal vocabulary in client interviews and other interactions, as well as how to draft basic documents in Spanish and translate legal materials between English and Spanish. Class instruction will take place primarily in Spanish, and students are expected to have at least a working proficiency level of written and spoken Spanish language fluency to enroll in the course. If students are unsure whether their level of Spanish is adequate, we encourage them to reach out to the instructors prior to the beginning of the semester.

Using Expert Witnesses and Consultants to Convey Complex Information

K. Jacobsen, M. Galloway
3 202 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.
