Special Topics, Education Law - LAW 792

2 Hours

This introductory course will examine significant and practical issues and problems that arise in the development, administration and reform of public educational systems. Our perspective will be the national landscape, though we will examine and contrast Alabama law and practice on some topics. The course will involve some Socratic lecture; yet the main approach will be problem-based learning, requiring students to be actively engaged in identifying, developing, articulating and defending positions on the relevant topics and issues. Students will demonstrate legal scholarship and skills through drafting memoranda, motions and briefs, and through presenting oral argumentation and debate on relevant issues.
