Corporate Law Lab Winter-Spring (1-1 credits) CR/NC
Dean Testy will lead a corporate law lab in Winter-Spring 2017. This lab will be offered jointly with Professor Charles O’Kelley of Seattle University (bio available here: http://law.seattleu.edu/faculty/profiles/charles-okelley) and will have four students from each school. Students will work with Dean Testy, Professor O’Kelley, and the Washington State Bar Association’s Corporate Act Revisions Committee (CARC) to study and make recommendations for amendments to Washington’s corporate law in light of recent revisions to the Model Business Corporation Act. Students will have the opportunity for study with and mentorship by the experienced corporate lawyers who are members of CARC and will gain substantial hands-on experience with the corporate law of Washington. Students will also be able to be part of CARC’s process of seeking legislative change to the corporate law of Washington.

Community Court Program Winter (2 credits) CR/NC
Livable City Year is a partnership between the University and the City of Auburn. Auburn seeks to develop a Community Court Program to implement new and creative approaches to rehabilitate low-level offenders that have committed designated crimes within the city limits of Auburn. Under faculty supervision (Prof. Lauren Sancken), students will work with Auburn on the initial design of a community court program, including its Police Department to analyze statistics on crimes, arrests, and repeat offenders in 2014-2015, and its Human Services Division to obtain information for appropriate social and health service providers in the area that would be willing to work with the Community Court Program. Students will prepare a final report and short interim memoranda on various phases of work. This class will take at least one field trip to Auburn to meet with city officials, including the Auburn Attorney’s Office.
