LGP 915 (01) - Conflict of Laws

Credits: 2.0 or 3.0
Term: Spring 2018 - Law (01/16/2018 - 04/27/2018)
Class Size:   25  
CRN: 54691
This is an introductory course in Conflicts of Law. In our complicated and ever shrinking world, the power of different bodies to make or administer law is often unclear. And even when there is clarity, law-making powers frequently overlap. Thus, conflicts arise, and a way is needed to resolve them. Broadly speaking, this is the subject matter of Conflicts of Law. This course will focus on ensuring that students have a sound understanding of the basic model for choice of law and its underlying theories. This is the subject of part I of the casebook, which covers chapters 1-3. We will cover all of this material. In the time remaining, we shall cover Chapter 8 - International Conflicts - because many of the students will be taking the course to supplement their understanding of international law. Conflicts of Law is often a bar course, so intense study of the topics covered in chapters 1-3 should prove very helpful in terms of bar preparation. Eligibility: Open to 2Ls and 3Ls. Course format: lecture. Grading: other (see syllabus), 100%. This course may be taken for an S/U grade.

The Constitution allocates power among the three branches of the federal government, between the federal government and the states, and between all government and individuals. Reflecting this division of responsibility, the course divides into three main units: (1) the separation of powers between the branches of the federal government; (2) the relationship between the federal government and the states; and (3) the basic structure of the Constitution's protection of individual rights, including the specific protections of due process and equal protection. Significant portions of the Constitution will not be covered. In particular, constitutional provisions regarding the rights of criminal defendants and the protections provided by the First Amendment are topics covered in other courses. Eligibility: Required JD course. Course format: lecture. This course is recommended for taking the bar exam. Grading: other (see syllabus), 100%. This course cannot be taken for an S/U grade.

This course will introduce and illustrate the fundamental legal concepts and terms involved in the control of three kinds of property: real estate, chattels (goods), and intellectual property. With primary emphasis on real property, we will study the rights and powers of ownership, how they are acquired and transferred, how ownership can be shared (either simultaneously or over time, including future interests, leases, and licenses), recording systems and the rights of purchasers or lien holders, and sovereign powers (grant, escheat, eminent domain, regulation, and forfeiture). Grading methods may vary depending on which professor is teaching Property. For Professor Hurn attendance and preparation do not count for points, but excessive neglect of either will result in disenrollment. Otherwise his grades are based on one closed-book final exam. For Professor Massey, attendance, preparation, and useful class participation count as no more than 15% towards the final grade; sustained disengagement (as manifested by poor attendance and poor preparation) will result in reduction of the course grade by no more than 15%. The final exam will be closed book and consist of multiple choice questions and one essay. Eligibility: Required JD course. Course format: lecture. This course is recommended for taking the bar exam. Grading: other (see syllabus), 100%. This course cannot be taken for an S/U grade.
