Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Related Elective for those interested in Comparative Legal Systems : Understanding the principles of federalism is key for those interested in practicing impact litigation and other areas of public interest law and policy. Civil rights cases and similar subjects are typically within the jurisdiction of the federal courts and it is important for litigators to understand the separation of powers and the separate jurisdiction of state and federal courts. This course considers legal debates and policy issues concerning federalism in the U.S., with some comparisons to similar issues in other countries.

General course Description:

This course is an overview of legal and policy issues connected to federalism. We will examine a set of core theoretical questions - the values federalism serves; the relationship of federalism and individual and minority rights; and the role of judges in enforcing federalism through judicial review - across a wide range of contemporary legal debates (e.g., same-sex marriage, medical marijuana, immigration, voting rights). While much of the seminar will focus on the United States, we will also consider federalism in comparative context by examining the constitutions and legal doctrines of other regimes. Special Instructions: After the term begins, students accepted into the course can transfer from section (01) into section (02), which meets the R requirement, with consent of the instructor. Students taking the seminar for R credit can take the seminar for either 2 or 3 units, depending on the paper length. Elements used in grading: Class Participation, Written Assignments or Research Paper.
