Civil Rights and the Law

In this course, you will play the role of a brand-new civil rights lawyer. When working for a civil rights law firm, a wide variety of issues reach your desk every day. Your job is to analyze these cases with your colleagues (aka your classmates), learn and understand the law, and develop strategies to represent your clients in negotiations, mock trials and arguments, and other simulated legal proceedings. Topics include a range of advanced Constitutional Law and Civil Rights issues. Reading, writing, and speaking standards will be emphasized.
