LAW 7636 - Selected Topics in American Law


This is a skills-development course that provides students with an intensive substantive review of selected legal material routinely tested on the bar exam and relevant to law practice, including contracts, torts, civil procedure, criminal law and procedure, real property, evidence, corporations, constitutional law, professional responsibility, wills and trusts, community property, and remedies. Through the use of problems and exercises in a bar exam format, students will become familiar with the techniques for analyzing, organizing, and writing essay questions based on California law. This is not a substitute for a bar review course, but a course on how to write good legal analysis in a particular area in a short window of time. Note: any student entering their final year of law study ranked in the bottom 25% of their class MUST take Selected Topics in American Law (AND Legal Analysis Workshop) in order to graduate. Because of the helpful and important nature of these courses, all students in the bottom 50% are strongly encouraged to enroll even if it is not required. Enrollment is limited to third and fourth year law students. (Offered every semester.) 3 credits
