Civil Procedure LAW 510

School: Law
Credits: 4
Prerequisites: Permission of professor required. Contact Department
Course Description: This course is similar to the introductory civil procedure courses taught at most law schools for the last two or three decades, with one major difference. In common with most courses, this course covers the basic institutions of civil litigation in an adversary jury trial system. Pleading, discovery, and other pretrial procedures are explored. Many trial topics are covered, with special emphasis on the procedural devices that arise out of the relationships among the parties, the judge, and the jury, the right to a jury trial, special verdicts, instructions to the jury, directed verdicts and judgments notwithstanding the verdict, new trials, and similar matters. Appeals and post-finality relief from judgments are included. At least the rudiments of claim and party joinder and res judicata also are covered. Unlike most first-year civil procedure, however, this course does not cover any of the variety of topics loosely described as jurisdiction. Those topics have been moved into the upper level elective course in Jurisdiction and Choice of Law.

Introduction to Constitutional Law LAW 540

School: Law
Credits: 4
Prerequisites: Permission of professor required. Contact Department
Course Description: This course introduces the student to certain fundamental cases in Constitutional law, to the questions they raise, and to the modes of thought and criticism appropriate to this field. There is necessarily a large historical component to the work, for the Constitution has acquired its meaning over time. Major questions include: What is the justification for judicial review? What are appropriate occasions and standards for the exercise of this power? How has the power actually been used throughout our history? These questions are considered in the context of doctrinal fields chosen for variety of issues and to allow consideration of historical development over the full life of the Constitution. These fields include: the scope of federal powers; preemption; state regulation of interstate commerce (in some sections); powers of the President; relations between branches of the federal government; basic principles of racial equal protection; Congressional enforcement power under the Reconstruction Amendments; and justiciability.
