LAW 2824 - Current Problems in Constitutional Law
In this limited enrollment course each student role plays a Supreme Court member by discussing and deciding pending cases before the court. Each week a group of nine members of the course meets for two hours, having read the briefs and record in a case pending before the Supreme Court. The students do their own research and come to class prepared to discuss and vote on the case. Each week a different student acts as Chief Justice, begins the discussion, and then assigns the writing of the opinions after a tentative vote is taken. Thereafter, a student writes the opinion to which he or she has been assigned. Each student writes at least two full opinions during the semester. These generally consist of one majority opinion and one dissent, but a student may be assigned two dissents or two concurring opinions.
