    • 20259-01
    • Meyer, Jeffrey
    • Description changed to:
      Constitutional Litigation Seminar (20259). 2 units. Federal constitutional adjudication from the vantage of the litigator with an emphasis on Circuit and Supreme Court practice and procedural problems, including jurisdiction, justiciability, exhaustion of remedies, immunities, abstention, and comity. Specific substantive questions of constitutional law currently before the Supreme Court are considered as well. Students will each argue two cases taken from the Supreme Court docket and will write one brief, which may be from that docket, but will likely come from a circuit court decision. Students will also join the faculty members on the bench and will, from time to time, be asked to make brief arguments on very short notice on issues raised in the class. Enrollment limited to twelve. J.A. Meyer and J.M. Walker, Jr.

      Course Bidding: Students who have been accepted will be asked to confirm their commitment to the course before the beginning of the term. Attendance at all class meetings, including the first, is required unless specifically excused for a compelling reason. Any accepted students who decide not to take the class must so inform the instructors by 12 noon on August 31 (the day after the first class). Any waitlisted students who continue to be interested should attend the first class meeting on August 30, and only such waitlisted students who attend the first class meeting will be considered for any class openings.

      Note: The first class meeting will be on Wednesday, August 30, at the Law School in SLB 112. Thereafter, the class will meet at 141 Church Street (directly across the Green from Old Campus) on the following dates: September 6, 14; October 4, 5, 11, and 12; November 1, 2, 8, 9,15, 16, and 29. All class meetings begin at 4:10 p.m. and end at 6 p.m. The break in the class schedule in the middle of the course (mid/late October) is designed to give students a time to write the brief that is required for the class.

    • Stith, Kate
    • Description changed to:
      Prosecution Externship and Instruction (30193). 2 or 3 units, credit/fail. Students in this clinical externship will assist state or federal prosecutors with their responsibilities, and surrounding cities or in Bridgeport; the federal caseload is varied, including misdemeanors, felonies, or specialized areas such as violent crime, white collar crime, drug trafficking, or appellate work. The State’s Attorney for New Haven, which also has a varied but faster-paced docket, can take one or two student placements. All students are required to attend weekly class sessions, which will range from discussions of assigned readings to field trips to jails and the medical examiner's office. Students will keep journals and time records. Placements at the U.S. Attorney's Office must be arranged at least four months in advance, to allow time for security clearance procedures. Students also apply for the State's Attorney during the previous term, though interviews may take place after the student has been accepted into the Externship program. Enrollment is limited and permission of the instructor is required. However, the eearly application process and the involvement of outside agencies remove this clinic from the usual sign-up process for limited enrollment courses. Selection for this course takes place before limited-enrollment course bidding. K. Stith, S.V. Nagala, and A. Perry.

      Course Bidding Information: Select this course as your lowest preference among experiential course selections. Open only to students who have been pre-selected to participate. Do not select this course during pre-registration if you are not one of those students.

      Note: As part of the application process, students submit statements of interest; interview with the AUSAs who run the classroom portion of the course; interview with the New Haven District Attorney's Office for those interested in the state prosecutor's office.

      Note: Students may not be enrolled in an LSO clinic and any of the following non-LSO clinics in the same semester, whether as a student director, fieldwork only returning student, continuing student, or otherwise: Education Adequacy Project; Legal Assistance; Prosecution Externship.

      Note: The first class meeting will be on August 30, 3:30-5:20 p.m., in room 122 at the Law School. Thereafter, the class will meet at the U.S. Attorney's Office.
