W76 LAW 646SReorganization Seminar (Keating/Going/Palans/Schermer)3.0 Units
Description:Enrollment limit: 16. Drop deadline: 5:00 p.m. the day after the first class meeting. This course will be taught jointly by Professor Keating, United States Bankruptcy Judge Barry Schermer and David Going of Armstrong Teasdale. Lloyd Palans of Bryan Cave serves as the designated substitute teacher for the course. The primary focus of the class will be reorganizations under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. Using a single hypothetical reorganization as a backdrop, the instructors will take students through the various stages of a Chapter 11 case, from the initial filing with the bankruptcy court to confirmation of a plan of reorganization. The class will meet once each week during the semester for 90 minutes each session. The pedagogical objectives of the class include improving the students' persuasive writing, their knowledge of Chapter 11 bankruptcy law, and their ability to think on their feet. Attendance and preparation are both required. Students who have not taken the basic Bankruptcy course may enroll, but they may be at a disadvantage to those students who have. No laptops will be allowed during this seminar. Students' grades will be determined by their performance on two 8-page written assignments (both of which will require a re-write by the students after receiving written feedback from the instructors) and by their participation in class discussion. 3 units.

W76 LAW 790SAdvanced Topics in Foreign Relations Law Seminar (Waters)3.0 Units
Description:Enrollment limit: 16. Drop deadline: 5:00pm the day after the first class meeting. In this writing seminar, each student will explore a contemporary legal problem in foreign relations law. Over the course of the semester, students will prepare and revise a paper, comparable in scope and quality to a law review note, of approximately 25 to 30 pages. Students will choose paper topics at the beginning of the semester, with the help and guidance of the instructor. With instructor approval, students may write on any topic in foreign relations law. General areas of potential research include, but are not limited to, the distribution of foreign affairs powers between the President and Congress, legal issues surrounding the "war on terror," the role of courts in adjudicating foreign affairs cases, treatment of "enemy combatants" and other detainees, the incorporation of international treaty law and customary international law into U.S. law, the role of the 50 states in foreign affairs law, the relationship between the federal and state governments in foreign affairs, and the extraterritorial application of the U.S. Constitution and of U.S. laws overseas. Students must obtain instructor approval of their paper topics before beginning work. Each paper will progress from topic selection to a detailed written outline, to at least two drafts of approximately 25 to 30 pages each. We will meet formally as a group at the start of the semester, and will reconvene later in the semester as the need arises. Students will also have mandatory meetings with the instructor over the course of the semester. Students will receive significant individualized feedback after completion of the first draft. There are no formal prerequisites for this course, but students who have not taken a course in foreign relations law or international law may need to do additional work at the beginning of the semester to familiarize themselves with basic concepts. Grades will be based on a weighted average of the first and final drafts, with heavy point penalties for unexcused missed deadlines. (This seminar is not graded anonymously because the professor works with students on their papers throughout the semester.) 3 units.

Home/Ident

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
