HNRS 492             Exploring the American Legal System
Instructor:  Mulligan, Lumen                      Class #: 22350
Course Description:  In the United States, our courts play a unique role in resolving private and political disputes.  In this tutorial, students will learn about the U.S. legal system and the role lawyers play in that system.  Students will spend the first portion of the term learning the basic elements of legal reasoning and argumentation in a law-school, Socratic-method environment. During the remainder of the term, students will brief and orally argue several cases.  Topics will range from constitutional law to legislation to the common law, providing the students with an introduction to the breadth of our legal system.  Students not arguing in any given week will serve as judges of the court, asking questions of “counsel” and rendering judgments of the court.  Readings will be almost entirely case-law based and delivered to students electronically after the first day of class.
