    Federal Courts, the States, and the Federal System (21210). 4 units. This course will examine the relationship between federal courts and coordinate branches of the federal government; the interactions between state and federal courts; and the interplay of state and federal laws. We will explore vertical and horizontal separation of powers; how the power to make, interpret and enforce law is shared among the branches and between the federal and state governments; the theory and practice of federalism; and the jurisdiction, powers and limitations of the federal courts in our federal and federalist system. Note that this course will not focus on habeas or Native American law issues; students interested in those matters may wish to take the fall version of the course. Enrollment capped at eighty. Scheduled examination (web). A. Gluck.

    Note: Attendance at the first-class meeting is required to retain a place on the waiting list.
