General method of instruction
Class assignments and grading
Most students will complete a single research paper for presentation to the seminar. Completed research papers satisfy the advanced writing requirement for J.D. students. In lieu of the single research paper, selected students who will not be taking the seminar to satisfy their J.D. advance writing requirement may elect to write three shorter (8-10 page) papers on topics selected from a list compiled by the instructor. Please see the instructor not later than the second week of the seminar if you wish to elect this option.
