Additional Information: 

A seminar paper which will satisfy the Upper-Level Writing Requirement will comprise the major course work, but brief, two-page written reactions to each week’s required readings will also be expected. Some weeks, but not all, students will have to skim and master several hundred pages worth of historical narrative--e.g. Mark Tushnet’s Making Civil Rights Law and Richard Kluger’s Simple Justice--in addition to case opinions.

Grading Details: 

The seminar paper will constitute two-thirds of the semester grade, with the weekly essays and class participation counting for one-third.
