In this course, a different faculty member each week presents a recent case of interest to him or her and leads a brief discussion on it. Class sessions are open to the entire law school community. The course is designed to expose students to a wide range of topics and perspectives that might otherwise elude them in the course of their legal studies. It also functions as a survey of cutting-edge issues in the law, and underscores both the law's vibrancy and the advocate's need to keep current. Assessment is based on two very short (3-5 page) response papers. Grading is pass/fail only.
