The two would meet from time to time and the student would set forth what he or she had learned from a particular reading with discussion from the faculty member. (The Socratic Method was not employed, but the faculty member might ask questions to further the exploration of the reading in question.) The student might complete a number of short papers on the readings or organize the readings to complete a longer paper for the end of the tutorial. The purpose of the tutorial was to help the student master a field of law and/or philosophy, or explore a particular author's writings in depth, or resolve a particular problem. The preferred subjects are philosophy, jurisprudence, social and political philosophy, ethics, land use, population, environmental, and tort law. The details are to be worked out by the faculty member and the student, and a signed contract must be submitted to the Registrar's Office. This course is not eligible for the AWR. Past students have studied and/or written papers on Hegel, Rawls, Gramsci, Nietzsche, Aristotle, Aquinas, Foucault and others). The credit available for this course is one or two credits. "Interested students should meet with Professor Brooks in the semester before the term in which the course is scheduled to secure faculty permission and make initial arrangements." A maximum of two students will be enrolled in any one semester."

Class readings, discussions, and written assignments will encourage students to critically examine models of case resolution as articulated and applied by prominent jurists and theorists in their opinions and extra-judicial writings. Class assignments will encourage students to begin to develop their own case resolution models by asking them to draft opinions, bench memos, and judicial research memoranda based on the briefs and records in previously litigated state and federal cases. This course will provide the student with an understanding of the role and responsibilities of a judicial law clerk at the trial and appellate levels, particularly as they relate to assisting judges in formulating their written opinions. While designed especially for students who will be working as judicial interns or law clerks, this course is appropriate for any student interested in studying the practical application of the tools necessary for successful judicial opinion writing.GP0|#753de9a8-50d5-4537-9413-68730218fe3d;L0|#0753de9a8-50d5-4537-9413-68730218fe3d|Jurisprudence;GTSet|#f0004912-346b-4cda-81c5-04ab1bb4b34e;GPP|#db2210a7-625b-4bb0-9545-56e81bdfe48aGP0|#ba6a8949-beed-47cf-98c0-e2b6c177ad23;L0|#0ba6a8949-beed-47cf-98c0-e2b6c177ad23|Seminar;GTSet|#f0004912-346b-4cda-81c5-04ab1bb4b34e;GPP|#6e96bd23-dbd4-4d09-9c3e-0aa09c84b566327

We will study both historical and contemporary developments, from the Supreme Court’s insistence that women should not be allowed to practice law, to more recent controversies such as those surrounding single-sex education and the regulation of women’s sexual lives. We will read different legal theories about gender as well as the stories of women whose lives have been altered by the legal system. Most of our work will focus on the United States, but we will also examine international human rights issues as they pertain to questions of sexual equality. Each student in the course will write one reflection essay and do one final project either individually or in a group. Students will also be asked to give short presentation on her or his work. Both men and women are encouraged to take this course and all viewpoints are welcomed and encouraged. No prior coursework or experience is needed or required. Students wishing to do a AWR in conjunction with the course will receive one extra credit for their AWR.GP0|#753de9a8-50d5-4537-9413-68730218fe3d;L0|#0753de9a8-50d5-4537-9413-68730218fe3d|Jurisprudence;GTSet|#f0004912-346b-4cda-81c5-04ab1bb4b34e;GPP|#db2210a7-625b-4bb0-9545-56e81bdfe48aGP0|#02a64ecc-8b08-4637-b4c1-74446f866f69;L0|#002a64ecc-8b08-4637-b4c1-74446f866f69|Lecture;GTSet|#f0004912-346b-4cda-81c5-04ab1bb4b34e;GPP|#6e96bd23-dbd4-4d09-9c3e-0aa09c84b566328
