Foundations in US Common Law

Law 615






This course provides an introduction to the substantive and procedural law of the United States and to distinctive aspects of the Anglo-American system of common law, with the aim of bridging the gap between students' understanding of their home countries' legal systems and the United States legal system. It focuses on torts and property. Students holding law degrees from countries with predominately common law traditions may be exempted from this requirement upon the determination of the Faculty LL.M. Director.
