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.

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.

This course will introduce students to the field information privacy and data protection law. It will focus on the privacy of individual covering existing and emerging privacy legislation and regulations, international norms, and extraterritorial application of privacy law such as in US federal and state law, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and emerging international jurisdictions. Students will learn key principles that underlie most privacy laws around the world. Students will develop the skills to apply those laws to real-world scenarios, spot issues and areas of risk for entities subject to those laws and suggest practical solutions that meet compliance obligations and manage risk. The course will incorporate developments in the news, from the perspective of the various privacy stakeholders—consumers, regulators, and businesses.

This course is a semester-long limited enrollment course that affords those interested in constitutional litigation an opportunity to increase and refine their trial tactics and skills. This course provides students an opportunity to enhance their effectiveness as a litigator in many areas such as trial strategy, direct examination, including use of documentary evidence, expert testimony, exclusion of evidence through motions and objections, and dispositive motions. The course will begin with a review of basic constitutional concepts such as jurisdiction, standing, ripeness, 10th Amendment limits on federal jurisdiction, and distinctions between state and federal constitutional challenges. Students will select two cases. Working in teams of two, students will take on the task of challenging one law, and defending the second. This will require students to research and brief issues of constitutional due process, free speech, and equal protection.
