Valuation is a prerequisite for thoughtful decision-making. The old management adage?you can?t manage what you don?t measure?remains true today. In business, sound decision-making involves placing reasonable values on assets and strategies to identify the best decisions among competing, but uncertain, choices. While valuation has long been used by businesses to improve decisions, it has been slow to develop as a wide-ranging decision tool in the legal setting. As a result, valuation principles are too often ignored or poorly implemented in legal settings. Valuation should be a fundamental skill possessed by most lawyers. Consider just a few of the legal settings that require valuation to make properly informed decisions: ? Developing remedies in the litigation context. ? Making sue-or-settle decisions. ? Crafting effective laws and regulations. ? Determining how much to spend on legal services. ? Developing and executing business strategies that are based on legal rights (such as intellectual property strategies). ? Evaluating the success or failure of negotiations. In each of these contexts, the decision-maker must make a value judgment (the option chosen is better than options not chosen), whether the decision-maker appreciates it or not. For example, when a client decides to settle a lawsuit, she has valued the settlement alternative higher than the litigation alternative. Therefore, the choice is not whether to employ a valuation analysis. Rather, the choice is whether to employ an intelligent valuation analysis that helps inform the decision or to employ a sloppy process that ignores such valuable information. One reason (and probably the most powerful reason) for the slow development of valuation analysis in the legal setting is the common misperception that valuation is too difficult. This course will seek to disprove that notion. This course will teach students how to apply valuation principles in their future legal practice and become more effective lawyers. Strong math skills are not required. We will not employ any mathematical concepts beyond what is required in a 6th grade math class.

This course provides an introduction to the relationship between the law of property (both real and intellectual) and the arguments that are made by social justice advocates. 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 inequality. Four domestic and international case studies –– on (i) the 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
