LAW B 512 Legislation and Public Policy Seminar

Credits: 2-3, Max 3

To support today's law practice - which operates more and more in a public law environment (constitutional, statutory, regulatory, etc.) - this seminar takes a rigorous look at the process of law creation, interpretation, and evolution. While we will discuss many traditional areas of a legislation course, such as the craft of statute making and the methodology of statutory construction and interpretation, those topics will be examined from the broader perspectives made possible by learning in such fields as public choice theory, political science and literary theory, law and economics, legal history, and critical legal theory.
