Through this course, non-lawyers will gain a better understanding of the ways that attorneys are trained to navigate complex situations. Careful reading and analysis of case law and statutes will prepare students to address the ambiguity of many scenarios that arise in compliance work, emphasizing the importance of critical thinking and argument. The course will also introduce students to the common law method by which doctrine is created; the importance and authority of statutes, codes, and regulations; and the structure of the U.S. legal system and its various actors and venues. The U.S. doctrines of contract and tort liability will form the substantive underpinning for the course, both because a knowledge of these areas is foundational for many later law courses and also because professionals working in the compliance field encounter these areas of law.

Criminal Practice is a practical class for those students who are committed to pursuing the vocation of criminal law. While Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure cover essential statutes and precedents, Criminal Practice teaches students how to use that knowledge and ethically practice criminal law in the field. For example, in Criminal Law students may have learned what a suppression hearing is, and in Criminal Procedure they will have studied the law that can be relied upon to suppress evidence. Criminal Practice builds on that knowledge and covers the actual preparation and presentation of a suppression motion-how to write the motion (and response), how to prevent evidence at the hearing, and how to interact with clients and agents before, during, and after the hearing. Because the course is rooted in practice, much of the student work is done in the form of exercises, which track the work done throughout the criminal case. As much as possible, these exercises are crafted to reflect the challenges faced in real cases.

Restorative justice is an interdisciplinary course which explores the world-wide movement of using restorative practices to respond to harm. Restorative justice is a philosophical and practical approach to harm which seeks to bring together victim-survivors, the broader community and, in some cases, perpetrators to promote accountability and healing. The course will examine both criminal and non-criminal harm and will delve into how restorative practices are utilized as a creative and humane path to healing and, where appropriate, an alternative to punishment. Students will learn what restorative justice is, its foundations, and its broad applications in society and law. Additionally, through the course, students will engage various guest speakers who have experienced or used restorative practices as an instrument of justice and restoration. Practitioners who are expert in the field will teach students through group exercises skills and practices that are integral to the effective use of restorative justice. Lastly, students will learn about the nature of harm and its effects and will explore the role of the lawyer as healer and the related values and skills that attend this vocation.

The UST Journal of Law and Public Policy (JLPP) seeks to advance the ideals embodied in the mission statement of the University of St. Thomas School of Law through the exploration of conservative legal thought, public policy, and social justice. JLPP is primarily a symposium-based journal, which promotes meaningful analysis of important policy and legal issues. The symposia also give the law school community a chance to reflect on issues closely connected with the mission and vision of the School of Law and ongoing policy debates. JLPP's Latin subtitle, which translates as “the laws depend not on being read, but on being understood,” is a core foundation of both its symposia and the works it publishes. Students are selected for membership through a write-on competition.

The LLM Mentor Externship incorporates two of UST Law’s curricular innovations -- the Mentor Externship Program and the Foundations of Justice course -- to provide LLM students a unique inside view of the American system of justice. Each LLM student is matched with a “mentor” who is active in the legal profession. This relationship is supplemented and supported by the MEFJP course, in which students explore the practical aspects of crafting a professional identity as a lawyer, and reflect together on the fundamental theoretical and moral principles that shape the identity of lawyers across different legal and social cultures. The MEFJP is tailored to help LLM students address the particular challenges of bridging the difference between the legal and social culture of the United States, and the different legal and social cultures in which the LLM students received their primary legal degrees.

This course examines sentencing, the portion of the criminal process that often matters most to the defendant and to society. The course covers state law, federal law (including the federal sentencing guidelines), and the death penalty. Because far more cases result in a sentencing than go to trial, and because the doctrines and rules that control sentencing can be very complex, the subject is important and challenging. The course is useful for those planning to practice criminal law or those considering it, as well as for those considering federal judicial clerkships. Typically , the grade for the course is determined by a final exam and a sentencing exercise.

The purpose of this course is for students to gain an understanding of the digital asset industry and its impact on the future of society and governance. Digital assets and smart contracting enable a revolution of applications in most industries and especially in the legal industry. Yet, the development of these technology driven solutions depend on decentralized governance, which is still in its very early stages of development. Students will learn how decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) are replacing existing corporate entities and 503 (b) non-profits as well as B-Corporations. DAOs can help create a nurturing environment for the evolution of the digital asset industry through decentralized DAO governance. DAO governance is a key legal issue for the development of this asset class and inevitably requires legal expertise. Key ideas that will be discussed include reputation systems and reputation-based DAO governance, historiography, and transcendental unifying values. Based on the understanding of challenges and opportunities presented by decentralized governance, students will develop the ability to discern their own possible value proposition in the disruption of businesses in various industries. The course emphasizes the importance of student skills at the intersection between law, business, finance, computer science, and psychology.

The European Union (EU) was originally meant to be an economic integration of the Member States. However, with the broadening and deepening of the integration, it became clear that – as a side effect of economic cooperation – at least some social issues had to be harmonized as well. Starting from a sole provision on equal pay for men and women in 1957, the EU has gradually developed a sophisticated set of rules on equal treatment, working conditions, cross-border working patterns and social security. The EU level legislation on the different fields concerning employment is generally referred as “European Labor Law”, although it is not as coherent and detailed as national labor laws and issues with strategic importance – like the termination of employment or liability for damages – are still left unregulated. Nonetheless the over 20 labor law directives adopted throughout the decades and their interpretation elaborated by the European Court of Justice has had significant impact on the national labor legislation of the Member States and, consequently, on the everyday life of around 210 million European workers. The EU’s legal solutions to tackle various challenges in employment – like measures to enhance work-life balance, to combat harassment or to prevent misuses in atypical work – are often considered as a role model for other countries or for the International Labour Organisation.

Congress and the President are constitutional collaborators and rivals in governance. Each has powers defined for them in the Constitution, yet the scope of their respective authorities has changed over time, raising questions regarding the extent of their powers today. This seminar examines the scope of their respective powers under Articles I and II of the Constitution, concentrating on the various clauses that define the powers of each branch and how they differ, occasionally overlap, and check one another. The class will seek to accomplish several tasks. One, the readings will describe the current state of the law regarding Congress or the president when it comes a specific clause of the Constitution. By that, what appears to be the clear or settled law. Two, the readings and discussion will identify points of conflict when it comes to congressional and presidential authority. The goal here is to ascertain areas where the two branches seem to operate as rivals for seemingly rival spheres of authority. Three, perhaps the most interesting and important aspect of the class raises questions regarding the outer limits or boundaries of authority of Congress and the President to act. Our focus will be on points of conflict over which the current law in unclear. Here the discussion will look at constitutional, policy, and political factors that should inform or influence how to think of the authority of the two branches. Overall, the aim of the class is to engage discussion on how to think about congressional and presidential power as it has evolved, and what challenges this poses for governing within the confines of American constitutional theory and design. While this class cannot include or examine all the textual powers of the two branches, topics include the scope of congressional commerce, appropriations, delegation, investigatory power, and the powers of the president as the chief executive. Commander-in-chief, and to ensure that the laws are faithfully executed.

As Judge Jeffery Sutton notes, “Torts, property, and contracts—core staples for first-year law students—focus almost exclusively on state law. The one traditional first-year class that does not consider state law, as it turns out, is Constitutional Law. Yet the first year course teaches just half of the story as it addresses just one constitution—the federal constitution—and ignores [the fifty state constitutions]. As a lawyer responsible to advance a client’s objective, a competent lawyer should consider whether a client’s objectives can be most easily achieved through federal or state grounds. Sometimes the best result can be reached under state constitutional law. The course covers rights and structure, and in both settings, it compares the federal model to the various state models. Of particular emphasis is the role of the state courts in protecting liberty and property rights under their own constitutions, and most notably whether they should construe these guarantees to offer protections that the federal courts have not provided in construing the federal constitution. This gives us the occasion to take up the most active debate in state constitutional law over the last several decades: the responsibilities of state courts when interpreting state constitutional provisions that live in the shadow of their counterparts in the federal constitution, especially the weight to be given to the U.S. Supreme Court's interpretations of the federal provisions. Particular attention will be given to a variety of current issues in state constitutional law, including litigation involving school funding, marriage, property takings, criminal procedure, the free exercise of religion, among others.

This course provides direct experience with preparing and delivering presentations to varied audiences on topics relating to legal issues. Students will study presentation techniques as a framework, but the emphasis of the course is on doing: from the first class, students will stand up in front of a small group and start talking. The course progresses from simple oral presentations on a narrow topic, to presentations using slides that have already been developed, to presentations on broader topics where the students will work with a partner to develop slides, build a script, and deliver the presentation to an audience. Oral advocacy away from the courtroom is a universally necessary skill; lawyers who want to improve corporate practices, government policies, the conduct or direction of nonprofits, or the operations of their own firms need strong oral communication skills - and that can only come with experience.

The LLM Mentor Externship incorporates two of UST Law’s curricular innovations -- the Mentor Externship Program and the Foundations of Justice course -- to provide LLM students a unique inside view of the American system of justice. Each LLM student is matched with a “mentor” who is active in the legal profession. This relationship is supplemented and supported by the MEFJP course, in which students explore the practical aspects of crafting a professional identity as a lawyer, and reflect together on the fundamental theoretical and moral principles that shape the identity of lawyers across different legal and social cultures. The MEFJP is tailored to help LLM students address the particular challenges of bridging the difference between the legal and social culture of the United States, and the different legal and social cultures in which the LLM students received their primary legal degrees.
