Students study the developments in early English history that form the basis of the American common law system. As part of the study, students travel to London during spring break to enrich their understanding of this English foundation by visiting places and people relevant to the course material. The documents are in the form of readings, case studies and discussions focused on the period 1066-1215. Topics covered include, in particular, the historical origins of the common law system under Henry II and the setting of limits for royal authority under the Magna Carta. These themes are developed in relation to the King`s interest in protecting real estate rights and protecting individuals from criminal activity, both of which have become the basis of common law jurisprudence in the royal courts. PERSONAL INJURY LITIGATION (ADVC-345) 3 CreditsThis course introduces students to bodily injury/litigation from the perspective of the plaintiff and defense attorneys. The goal is to provide substantial and practical exercises and advice important to deal with the processes of bodily injury. Instructors use video clips and real-life case arguments in course material, providing students with hands-on experience to develop practical critical thinking. Fact models are introduced and used throughout the course and include cases of local liability and vehicle accidents, as well as the application of civil procedures and rules of evidence.

Throughout American history, race has profoundly influenced the lives of individuals, the growth of social institutions, the substance of culture, and the functioning of political economy. This effect is essentially mediated by law and legal institutions. Understanding the links between race and the law, and in particular how race and law constitute each other, is an extraordinary intellectual challenge. This course addresses this challenge by examining the emergence and growth of critical race theory (CRT). The CRT refers to a wave of jurisprudence that began in the late 1980s and flourished in the 1990s, with an emphasis on the role of race and racism in law and society. CrT is reshaping the role of law as a historic center and complicit in maintaining racial hierarchy and hierarchies of gender, class, and sexual orientation, among others. This course will trace the intellectual history of the CRT through essential writings that mark its emergence and development. The course will examine key concepts related to CRT and examine the specific analytical frameworks that critical race theorists use to discuss the use and meaning of race in legal institutions, politics, and ideology.

The course will also explore some of the issues and criticisms raised about CRT inside and outside the genre, as well as the impact of the work on legal and political discourse. The central agenda of the course is the study of the race itself – what exactly is the breed? – and the role that the law plays in the construction of race and the alternation of improvement and maintenance of racism. NEGOTIATIONS (ALDR-303) 3 creditsDepension skills are fundamental to virtually any legal practice, regardless of specialty; Whether you are ready or not, you will negotiate. This course deals with theory and practice, providing students with basic skills and experience, as well as the conceptual framework to further develop their skills through the negotiation experience they gain throughout their careers. The theory and skills are based on the classic and excellent texts Getting to Yes by R. Fisher and W. Ury of the Harvard Negotiation Project and Bargaining for Advantage by G. R. Shell of the Wharton Executive Negotiation Workshop. Students develop practical negotiation skills through simulated negotiation exercises that cover a variety of complexities and practice areas ranging from cooperative partnership scenarios to competitive disputes or buy/sell situations. The course design includes a two-hour session where measures are discussed and prepared for the week`s simulation, and a second two-hour session devoted to the week`s simulated negotiation exercise and is carefully trained by an experienced negotiator. Students will have the opportunity to criticize themselves in this smaller, supportive environment with the help of a few video-recorded exercises.

Grades are based on class participation, professionalism, effort and skills in simulations. There will also be short written exercises related to simulations and short quizzes on the applicable rules of business conduct. No exams. Today, the demand for lawyers around the world is increasing day by day. You can work with companies or practice as a lawyer in the course. Whether you want to become a judge, lawyer or police officer, online law courses will bring you one step closer to your career goals! Students who complete the Enhanced Analytical Skills Lab will refine the academic skills required to succeed in law school, bar exam, and legal practice. In particular, students develop non-cognitive and cognitive skills as well as learning strategies in the following areas: critical reading, critical thinking, legal synthesis, legal reasoning, and answering legal exams such as dissertation and multiple choice questions. The lab will be based on the content material that will be covered in other courses. The faculty offers a four- or five-year program of study and prepares students for the Bachelor of Laws (LLB).

EXERCISES IN NATIONAL SECURITY LAW (GOVT-500) 1 creditThis course will address current issues in national security law, including data security, terrorism, surveillance and border security. After reading essential background materials, students participate in exercises that place them in the role of legal counsel faced with difficult decisions. Following the Supreme Court`s expected decision on the status of abortion rights in America, this course aims to examine what reproductive rights currently exist and, in this context, to examine what reproductive justice was, is or should be in order to take into account the applicable laws of states and states. Reproductive justice is defined as an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the barriers people face in exercising autonomy over their bodies and controlling their reproductive health and life. To this end, our analysis of these questions requires a study from the intersectional perspective of the social sciences. In addition, these issues require national and international perspectives, as we look at practical solutions from a legal and not a legal point of view. Ten courses are completed in the first semester and eight in the second semester. Only two of them are law schools.

Law courses lay the foundation for law courses for students. CANNABIS ACT AND POLICY (BUSN-347) 2 creditsThis course examines federal and state regulations of cannabis, including marijuana and hemp. The course examines how these regulatory systems have evolved and provides comparisons of models at the state level. The course will address Washington`s current regulatory environment in the broader context of the decriminalization and legalization of marijuana over the past two decades, as well as the industry`s unique legal challenges and uncertainties arising from the conflict between federal and state law. In addition, the course covers the specific impacts that the cannabis industry has had on other areas of law, as well as practical considerations for advising cannabis clients from seed to sale. Cost reduction. Online law courses are cheaper than traditional on-campus programs. The course introduces students to the concept and practice of collaborative law, a non-adversarial means of resolving disputes in all areas of law where there are disputes, while they are most often used in the context of family law. Collaborative practice is generally a multidisciplinary process designed to help the parties resolve legal issues in a dignified manner and with respect for all stakeholders, using constructive communication methods with the active participation of the parties to the dispute. Since family law is the area where most collaborative lawyers have taken place, this course focuses on collaborative divorce and briefly addresses other legal contexts where collaborative practice can be useful. Students are expected to attend classes, read assigned materials prior to class, complete assignments on time, and be ready to participate in classroom activities and discussions.
