  • Legal Profession: Ethics

    LAWS 41003 - 01 (3) l, m, p, w, x
    This seminar will address ethical considerations raised during the practice of law, including strategic, practical, and moral considerations with which attorneys should be familiar. Students will need access to Selected Standards on Professional Responsibility, and Professional Responsibility, Problems and Materials (University Casebook Series), by Thomas D. Morgan and Ronald D. Rotunda, and reading materials provided during the course. Students will also need access to Westlaw and/or Lexis. We will also discuss additional material I will send by email. During class we will discuss both the rules and the ethical situations that lawyers face in a variety of situations. While I will expect students to read the rules and the casebook, this will not be a class where I ask students to recite the facts of cases and analyze them. There will instead be a greater focus both on rules lawyers need to know and on the ambiguities of how to handle particularly difficult issues lawyers may encounter in practice. I will teach this class as a participatory seminar. Students will be evaluated both on the basis of a paper of 20 pages in length on a topic relating to professional responsibility of the student's choosing and on participation. Attendance is mandatory. My practice and travel make me unavailable from time to time. I may hold makeups 2-3 times during the quarter. They will take place on Wednesday or Friday mornings at 8:00.

  • Legislation and Statutory Interpretation

    LAWS 44201 - 01 (3) e, x
    Much of lawyers' work today involves the close reading and interpretation of statutes or like texts. The focus of this class is the study of current interpretive theories and their application. The class also encompasses political theory and public choice approaches to the legislative process as they relate to legal interpretation. The class has the aim of bolstering students' capacity to work with statutes in law school and beyond. At the end of the class, students will have a thorough grasp of the process through which statutes are produced by the legislative branch and their interpretation by the courts. The student's grade is based on class participation and a final examination.
