​Human Rights and Social Justice

This class examines the role of lawyers in movements for social justice and some of the key human rights issues that exist in the United States, including how lawyers and judges have both contributed to and tried to address these issues through existing legal doctrines.

When we think of human rights issues, we tend to think of abuses that exist beyond our borders.  But human rights issues exist in the United States, and our proximity can often desensitize us to these issues.  As Human Rights Watch wrote in 2021:

Important human rights failings of the United States were laid bare in 2020.

The grossly disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on Black, brown, and Native people, connected to longstanding disparities in health, education, and economic status, revealed the enduring effects of past overtly racist laws and policies and continuing impediments to equality. The police killing of George Floyd in May, and a series of other police killings of Black people, sparked massive and largely peaceful protests, which in many instances were met with brutality by local and federal law enforcement agents.

This Human Rights Watch report goes on to document human rights failings in the United States in the context of racial justice, poverty and inequality, injustices in the criminal legal system and juvenile justice system, drug policy, the rights of non-citizens, health and human rights, voting rights, the education, the environment, reproductive rights, elderly rights, sexual orientation and gender identity, and freedom of expression and assembly, among other areas. 

This class will examine many of these human rights issues, including discussing whether these issues are actually problems that need addressing.  In doing so, this class will discuss how legal doctrines created by lawyers and judges have both contributed to and tried to address some of these issues.  We will also use case studies from New Hampshire to demonstrate how these issues have had an impact more locally.

In the context of these human rights issues, we will not only explore the legal origins of these issues, but we will also explore core questions about what it means to be a lawyer interested in public interest advocacy and pushing for social justice. The goals for this course will be—in addition to developing a command of the legal doctrines implicating various human rights issues—to become familiar with civil rights advocacy and the approaches public interest lawyers take to their work.  To do so, we will analyze in the first part of the course historical and contemporary movement lawyering and explore different advocacy tools and their efficacy in solving social problems.

FEDERAL LOW-INCOME TAXPAYER PRACTICUM

In addition to the casework necessary for handling their cases, the students will learn how to interview clients, gather and investigate relevant facts, work with the Internal Revenue Service, and track all case activity and documents in client case management systems. Students will also learn how to conduct outreach and education for low-income populations, network with local professionals to involve them in Pro Bono work, and advocate for systemic change within the Internal Revenue Service.

Property & Social Justice

It builds on students’ understanding(s) of the conceptual role of property in a free and politically liberal democratic society and the constitutional protection of property which form the basis for consideration of the empirically-evidenced role property plays in structural social and economic inequalityFour domestic and international case studies –– on (ithe Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA)(ii) redlining and foreclosures in the context of the real estate market(iii) SARS-CoV-2 and other life-saving vaccines and drugs, as well as (iv) an issue of students’ choosing –– are used to uncover the social justice implications of the property law system in America and the world, as well as consider policy options for how to address present socioeconomic injustices founded in property law. Upon completion of this course, students should be able to: (1) understand and apply basic principles of American property law relative to the subject areas in which the four case studies are situated; (2) articulate key social justice arguments for and against significant property-related rules and policies in the subject areas covered in the case studies; and (3) critically engage with different sources of property law, including judicial decisions, statutes, and regulations, from a social justice perspective

This course will introduce students to fundamental principles of U.S. copyright law. The legal protection of "creative" content as an intangible property right has been statutorily recognized in the U.S. for over 200 years. While legal rights in such works are often seen as rooted in economic rationale, the law has changed over time, in response to technological challenges and international developments. The course will therefore also provide students with an understanding of how U.S. copyright law functions and adapts in this changing environment. Students with an interest in any branch of modern intellectual property law and how it responds to modern challenges will benefit from this course. Hybrid Juris Doctor students cannot take this course for an S/U grade.

Current copyright law became effective over 40 years ago and many of its provisions were drafted a decade or more before that. Congress has made piecemeal adjustments since that time, but many of the law?s staple doctrines have become strained. In this seminar, students will examine the range of challenges facing the copyright system and the perspectives of the various stakeholders involved in discussions about how to solve them.
