Why it is relevant for ...
[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Key Elective : Many public interest cases concern complex, group-based harms, such as constitutional violations, and often involve unique remedies. This course covers both the legal doctrines for providing traditional remedies and the unique features of remedies for constitutional violations.
General course Description:
The remedy is arguably the most important part of any lawsuit, and often the most neglected. This course considers the question of what plaintiffs are entitled to when they win a case and why. It will cover damages, punitive damages, restitution, unjust enrichment, and injunctive relief. While we will consider public remedies in constitutional cases, the majority of the course will focus on remedies in private law civil actions.
Course Style: A Substantive course teaches the law, theory, and policy in a particular area of law
Course Frequency: Offered every other year
