Intellectual property (IP) gives legal protection, generally for a limited time period, to intellectual creations and innovation, through copyright, patent, trademark, and related laws. It is an excellent subject to study in a global perspective. Foreign IP laws and international agreements and institutions are increasingly important in the modern global economy. IP-related disputes—such as whether international agreements permit developing countries to limit patent rights in order to reduce the cost of medicines for AIDS and other pandemics—have been among the most heated topics recently in international commercial relations. This course will give students analytical skills, practical knowledge, and background context concerning transnational IP issues. It will begin with a short overview of copyright, patent, trademark, and related laws, and a short introduction to the international system of treaties/agreements, institutions, and choice-of-law principles for IP.

Every society somehow regulates the intimate, relational lives of individuals living within it. Most frequently, civil states claim (and excerise) authority over "family law" matters. But others make claims upon family life as well - whether group or individual, whether by formal or informal means, whether by religious or customary law. Such authority claims are often complicated by claims of "rights," for international human rights law increasingly purports to grant (or recognize) rights to individuals and groups that must be realized in the context of the family while state and societal law sometimes resists the application of such norms. In addition, a number of cross- boundary issues (adoption, child custody, or abduction, foreign marriage and/or divorces) arise in our increasingly global society, and these often impact local laws and policies. This course will investigate the authority claims of various groups (whether intermediate institutions or states) upon individuals and families, and the rights (and source of the same) claimed by individuals or families. Throughout, the course will pay special attention to the role of religion and faith, at both the individual and group levels. The course will also expose students to comparative legal systems regarding family structure, governance, and regulation, and will provide students both context and legal skills for dealing with transnational family law issues.

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.

Corporate Finance will study the basic financing techniques and related legal instruments by which business corporations raise capital. Topics covered will include venture capital, bank finance, IPO's, public and private sale of long term debt, securitization and derivatives. More theoretical topics will be covered by the course professor and more practical topics by specialist practitioners from Dorsey & Whitney who will review and discuss model agreements and term sheets. Certain areas which are increasingly regulated under the Dodd Frank legislation of 2010 will receive particular focus. They include securitization, derivatives and credit rating agencies. Students will be asked to analyze final and proposed rules under Dodd Frank. Students will be given the opportunity to work with "real" documents, drafting from models and commenting on the drafts of others. For example, a student might prepare a section of an agreement for a lender and another student might comment from the point of view of a borrower. There will be a final exam counting for half the course grade with the balance of the grade dependent on written analysis and drafting as well as oral class participation.

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.

Misdemeanor defense externship students will attend classes to learn about the practical and official rules of criminal procedure in Minnesota courtrooms. Students will be assigned to a practicing public defender attorney to learn how to represent clients in different types of proceedings (generally assigned based on student interest - for example, students interested in representing juveniles will be assigned to a juvenile division). Externship students will be expected to track and complete 200 hours of work in this course, with at least 160 of those hours devoted to fieldwork, and students will participate in the classroom component as well. Enrollment in the externship is by application only. To be eligible for a credit-earning externship, a student must first complete a minimum of 28 credits of study. Externship students must be in good standing. Externship students may be subject to other prerequisites/policies as required by the placement.

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.

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 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.
