7080 - 4   16987  Pre-Trial Practice
Pre-Trial Practice
The primary goal of this course is to prepare you to represent a client during the pretrial phase of a lawsuit. Today lawyers who litigate (except prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys) rarely take cases all the way through trial and appeal. In fact, less than 2% of civil cases filed in court actually go to trial. The other 98% are abandoned, settled, or resolved on motion practice. Therefore, in this course you will: prepare a pleading (complaint or answer); conduct “paper discovery” (i.e., prepare and respond to interrogatories, requests for admission, and requests for production of documents); conduct a witness interview and prepare a written interview summary; conduct a deposition and prepare a written deposition summary; prepare non-dispositive motions and memoranda (for or against jurisdiction, joinder, and interpleader); prepare and argue a dispositive motion (for or against summary judgment); and negotiate and document the settlement of a lawsuit. The course will have one class per week in which all students meet to discuss relevant concepts and skills, with small evening sections of about eight students each which will meet once a week with an adjunct professor to discuss, demonstrate, and critique the skills taught in the course.

7300 - 1   8677  Administrative Law
Administrative Law
Federal and state administrative agencies not only adjudicate thousands more cases than all of the courts, they also legislate, making the bulk of rules that govern those cases. As the instrument of government charged with implementing government decisions, they also "execute the laws" as part of the executive branch. This course introduces the statutory policymaking roles of administrative agencies; the limits on their authority; the procedural requirements that structure agency decision-making; and the role of judicial review. The focus is on federal administrative agencies, though some aspects of state law are also discussed.

Students in the National Service Academy Pilot Project (NSA PP) seminar will research and design the University of Utah’s proposed NSA PP that will recruit military veterans and others as graduate and undergraduate students into the University’s colleges and departments. NSA PP students will take a series of core courses together and graduate with NSA PP certificates when they complete degrees in their respective individual majors. Seminar students will write a definitive book about preparing NSA PP graduates for a continuum of national service utilizing veterans’ unique experiences, knowledge and skills for complex operations and leadership. Seminar students will thereby create a published template for similar national service academies at other colleges and universities to meet the pressing needs of veterans for higher education and meaningful employment. The seminar is recommended for the law’s school’s veterans, Global Justice Think Tank students, and other students who care about the educational and employment needs of our nation’s veterans.

This seminar explores the role of courts in defining and protecting civil rights, focusing on the constitutional principles of equal protection and substantive due process. By examining civil rights claims advanced by people of color, women, lesbians and gay men, and people with disabilities, we will seek to answer the following questions: Under what circumstances should courts afford heightened protection to particular groups? Should civil rights claims be framed as equality or liberty claims? Finally, what roles should courts and legislatures play in the recognition of civil rights? Prior completion of Constitutional Law II is strongly recommended.

Sexuality, Gender, and Law
This course will examine how the law attempts to regulate sexual orientation and gender identity. We will explore how criminal law, family law, constitutional law, and anti-discrimination law each impact the lives of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons. The course will begin with an interdisciplinary examination of sexuality from religious, psychological, sociological, and philosophical perspectives. Thereafter, video clips, religious and activist literature, fictional and non-fictional narratives, newspaper and magazine articles, and social scientific studies will add alternative perspectives to the cases we read. Legal topics will include the decriminalization of sodomy, the regulation of pro-gay and anti-gay speech, protections against discrimination in employment, rules governing the documentation of gender identity changes, prohibitions against same-sex marriage, and restrictions on gay and lesbian parenthood. Special attention will be devoted to the emerging tensions between assertions of LGBT rights and religious liberties. All views are welcome.

19th Cent Disadv Groups
The course examines the white man’s rationale and method for the domination of African-Americans, Indians, women, and children. The inquiry into slave law focuses upon such practical questions as the impact of criminal law upon masters and slaves, and restrictions upon emancipation. The Indian law section addresses the integrity of judicial policy in the application of fundamental theory created to govern a unique group. Nineteenth century family law provides further insight into the hierarchical morality of the period. While the context of the cases has some inherent interest, the actual goal of the class is to provide practice in careful analysis of judicial reasoning. Set to the daunting task of justifying the unjustifiable, nineteenth century opinions often display subtle and sophisticated reasoning.
