Federal Habeas Corpus
LAWS 58502
Habeas corpus is a central mechanism for challenging criminal convictions and executive detention in immigration and military contexts. This course covers the operation of habeas corpus in detail, focusing on those parts of the doctrine that are likely most relevant to students intending to clerk, to work as public defenders, or to work in states' attorneys general offices. It is designed to complement the Federal Courts coverage of habeas without excessive overlap. The grade is based on a final in-class examination.

Greenberg Seminar: Democracy’s Limits
LAWS 95902
Twenty years ago Francis Fukuyama declared democracy to be triumphant, heralding the “end of history.” Today, Fukuyama's prediction contrasts with a retreat from democracy in Asia and Africa, and democracies in deep economic turmoil in Europe (and, arguably, the US). This Greenberg explores the state of democracy today, drawing on critiques mustered by economists and political scientists as well as looking at case studies from the US to India. Graded Pass/Fail.

Workshop: Constitutional Law
LAWS 63612
This workshop, conducted over three sequential quarters, exposes students to current academic work in constitutional law and theory and other areas of public law. Workshop sessions are devoted to the presentation and discussion of papers from outside speakers, at six to eight sessions to be conducted regularly throughout the academic year. Enrollment may be limited. This workshop may be taken for fulfillment of the Substantial Research Paper graduation requirement. Grading is based on a substantial paper (or two shorter papers) plus brief reaction papers on each of the workshop papers. As an alternative to writing a long paper, you may write two or more extended reaction papers (i.e., 10-12 pages) to the papers presented in the workshop. You have to get our approval in advance for this option. We encourage it if you find that you have a lot to say about some of the workshop papers. If you wish to receive Writing Project (WP) credit for this option, you must submit a draft of each of the two long response papers to us and satisfactorily incorporate our suggestions.
