核心基础课程

  • 企业组织法(Business Associations)

    Professor: Nitzan Shilon

    This course surveys the role of legal controls on business organizations, with an emphasis on executives, directors and controlling shareholders of public corporations.  Aspects of the law of agency, partnership, and closely held corporations are reviewed to highlight continuities and discontinuities with the publicly held corporation.  Topics include basic accounting and basic corporate finance, limited liability, creditor protection, shareholder voting, executive compensation, fiduciary duties, shareholder lawsuits, and control transactions.  The emphasis throughout is on the economic analysis of legal rules as a set of constraints on corporate actors.

  • Civil Procedure I and II

    Instructor: Ray Campbell

    This course looks at civil legal procedure – the process through which private legal rights are enforced – with a particular focus on the U.S. Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.  While the course covers the same subject matter as would be covered in a typical US law school civil procedure course, it gives additional, particular emphasis to those aspects of the US civil justice system that are most relevant to non-US lawyers.

  • Constitutional Law I and II

    The first half of this two-quarter course introduces participants to historical, political, and legal developments in U.S. constitutional law, principally in the areas of individual rights and liberties and judicial review. The second quarter covers Federalism and Separation of Powers. Both provide an introduction to U.S. constitutional history with special emphasis on the historical, political, economic, and social circumstances under which American constitutional law has developed. The course explores some of the fundamental ideas underlying the American Constitution as well as the factors and processes that have shaped and changed American constitutional law over the years. A further dimension of understanding is achieved by referring to comparable developments in European, and in particular German, constitutional law.

  • Contracts I and II

    Instructor: Mark Feldman

    This two-quarter course examines the formation and interpretation of contractual agreements under U.S. law (common law and Uniform Commercial Code (UCC)) and international law (United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG)). The course also explores issues concerning the avoidance of contractual obligations and remedies for the breach of contractual obligations.

  • Criminal Law I and II

    Through the study of individual cases from multiple jurisdictions, this course develops understanding of the key elements of American criminal law: actus rea, (intent), mens rea (the act) concurrence and causation. The course examines the evidence and factors that courts and juries consider in determining the culpability of a defendant, and possible defenses a defendant might raise to a particular accusation. The course pushes students to think about the principles that have led the U.S. to structure its criminal justice system in the way that it has, and whether or not it is effective in realizing those principles.

  • Criminal Procedure

    The course will survey the entire American criminal process from investigation and arrest to sentencing. The course will cover the Bill of Rights and a comparison of adversarial vs. inquisitorial systems and will present a broad overview of criminal procedure, including arraignment, pretrial detention and release, discovery, right to counsel, right to trial by jury, pretrial motions, trial, and the roles of judge and jury. The course will also concentrate on search and seizure, interrogation and confession, and suppression of evidence under the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, following the case of a single defendant from arrest to conviction and sentencing.

  • Deal Documentation

    Professor: Douglas Levene

    This course teaches the basic elements of a business contract and provides students with writing exercises in which they apply the materials presented. There is one class session each week with Professor Levene; students then meet in small groups sessions with a C.V. Starr Lecturer. In the small group sessions, the C.V. Starr Lecturer goes over the homework assignments and gives additional exercises for the students to practice drafting skills.

  • 法律职业道德

    Instructor: Ray Campbell

Topics to be covered in the second quarter include the leasing of real property (e.g., nonfreehold estates, assignments, subleases), private land use planning (e.g., easements, real covenants, equitable servitudes), land use regulation, eminent domain, and takings.

  • Torts I and II

    This two-quarter course covers the law of civil injuries and liabilities. The goal of Torts I is to focus in depth on the areas in torts that are the highest-stakes litigation areas, namely the theory of negligence, medical malpractice and emotional harm. Torts II focuses on developing critical thinking skills, so as to provide the intellectual foundation for more advanced torts topics such as products liability, and for new legal areas beyond torts.

  • Transnational Law

    Instructor: Stephen Minas

    This course focuses on the growing interaction between national and international legal norms and processes, the importance of transnational corporations (TNCs) in the world economy, and the rise of large global law firms engaged in international practice.
