CLASS UPDATES

What you should know about this class

  1. The class meets every day from Monday, January 6, to Thursday, January 9, 2014, from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM (note the end time varies from the official course listing). Students are also required to attend a full day conference, scheduled for Friday, January 17, 2014, from 9:00 AM - 4:15 PM.
  2. The class will meet in two different classrooms. For the first class, please report to Wolf 305, our official meeting place.
  3. This class will be held during wintersession, the one week period immediately preceding the spring semester 2014. Traditionally, wintersession offerings have been limited to trial advocacy, but last year and this year the Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs wanted to experiment with a few, new, one-credit course offerings.
  4. In the spirit of the experimental nature of the Associate Dean's charge, this won't be a typical law school class. First, the class will focus a lot on technology and technology policy and not a lot on legal doctrine.
  5. Second, half of the classes will be conducted in the computer lab in the basement of the law library, and every student will receive hands-on experience with some of the technologies we will study.
  6. This course is offered for a grade. Your grade will be assessed based on a combination of all of the following:
  7. The reading for the class is expected to be comparable in quantity to a typical law school seminar, meaning approximately 30 to 50 pages per day, although the final syllabus is still being worked out.

Monday Reading

Advice on reading: You need not read the assignments in this class as closely as you do for your doctrinal, black-letter courses. Instead, read for close comprehension but not more. (This may be similar advice you've been given in your seminar courses.)

For the first class, the readings fit in two categories:

Tuesday Reading Wednesday Reading

The reading assignment for Wednesday is now finalized.

Thursday Reading
