Supreme Court Litigation Seminar – A Case Study
Justice Peter Rubin
J.D. Seminar 367 | 1 credit hours
In this course, a small group of students will explore Supreme Court litigation, using as a starting point an actual case being heard by the Court in January. The course will include examination of the opinions below and the filings in the Supreme Court; a visit by Supreme Court counsel and perhaps other special guests; and a chance to watch the moot court sponsored by our Supreme Court Institute. We hope to obtain as a special bonus an opportunity for students to attend the argument at the Court.
Recommended: Constitutional Law II: Individual Rights and Liberties.
