LAW 301P - Higher Education Practicum.


A practicum simulating private law practice and in-house counsel practice doing legal work on behalf of universities, including constitutional and statutory compliance issues, such as matters involving constitutional and civil rights law compliance, and issues involving university employment, finance, tax, intellectual property, governance, athletics, and safety/security matters. Students will work in teams to represent students, faculty members, university trustees, university administrators, alumni student organizations, public interest groups, and other parties in a variety of hypothetical problems and exercises requiring strategic thinking, critical analysis of legal principles, and understanding of the cultural, political, and social traditions of American colleges and universities. Although the course operates in a higher-ed context, most student work will be very useful preparation for the general counsel’s office of any business. There are a few higher-ed specific issues like Title IX, but topics like intellectual property, employment law, and litigation technique are much the same regardless of their context. Four hours.
