Outline of Lecture Course

The topic of this seminar is "Law in 2017". The purpose of this course is to research and analyze developing legal events in "real time" (in a broad sense of the term). This will focus on two separate processes: legislation and litigation. Legislation involves the passing of laws by a legislature for the purpose of implementing some sort of policy. Litigation, in the context of this course, refers specifically to challenges brought before the judiciary against government policies. The policy areas looked at will be diverse, including such things as current legislative attempts to regulate the use of private stay accommodations (such as AirbnB) in Japan, court decisions related to Brexit in the United Kingdom, and legal challenges to the president's executive orders on immigration in the United States.

The seminar has no focus on any specific doctrinal area of law and is conceived broadly so as to allow for the inclusion of the diverse policy and legal interests of students.

Course Objectives

The main learning objective of this seminar is to develop the research and analytical skills necessary to evaluate ongoing legal events, including both legislative and judicial processes and how they affect major policies.
