In this seminar, each student becomes expert in a topic with a nexus to commercial law or contracts. Students should think ahead about their topics to facilitate approval by the professor in the first weeks of the semester. Although the subject may simply reflect an interest, it could be one an employer wishes to have examined in detail. Early in the semester, proposals are roughly grouped for class presentations with class assignments developed by each group working with the professor. Each student completes an individual major paper after rigorous peer and professorial editing of a rough draft.
Because this seminar can help dovetail academic preparation for particular employment, preference is given to 3Ls; 2Ls are also welcome.
