H10541: RELIEF: Topics in Civil Litigation in HSSP Summer 2016 (Jul. 10, 2016)
We will cover a variety of topics and terms in American civil litigation - from certiorari to preemption to insider trading to equitable relief. What is an arbitration clause, and why would you look for one? Who counts as an accredited investor? What makes someone an employee - and why does it matter to companies like Uber? How do you know if a company is public or private? What's a class action, and why are you receiving a $25 gift card in the mail? We'll treat questions like these - and briefly cover the tools used for legal research. Not everyone is interested in becoming a lawyer - but at some point, someone might steal your money, deny you your wages, or misrepresent the product they sell you. Knowledge of the law has practical benefits - and study of the law allows us to consider social, political, and economic issues.
