During the Fall 2010 semester, I am teaching Criminal Law and Constitutional Criminal Procedure.
During the Summer 2010 semester, I taught International Copyright Law at the University of Vienna Law School, and Practical Lawyering Seminar at Loyola College of Law.
During the Spring 2010 semester, I taught Legal Profession (legal ethics), Trial Advocacy and Bar Exam Preparation Seminar at Loyola New Orleans College of Law.
Legal Research (LAW 898) (1 or 2 hrs.)
This course is designed to develop skills in legal research, analysis and writing, and to allow the student the opportunity to study a narrow subject in depth under the supervision of a full-time faculty member with expertise in the area. A written paper is required for satisfactory completion of this course, whether it is taken for one or two hours credit. A letter grade is given for completion of the course. The course may be taken for two hours of credit to satisfy the writing requirement. A student must be in good academic standing and receive the permission of the associate dean for academic affairs to register for this course.
Independent Study (LAW 899) (1 or 2 hrs.)
This course is designed to allow the student an opportunity to study a narrow subject in depth under the supervision of a full-time faculty member with expertise in the subject area. Appropriate written documentation pertinent to the study is required, but the course does not necessarily entail a single research paper as is the case with Legal Research (LAW 898). This course is only graded on a pass/fail basis and may sometimes involve working for an outside agency (i.e., an “extern” program), with general supervision and evaluation by the designated faculty member. A student must be in good academic standing and receive the permission of the associate dean for academic affairs to register for this course. This course cannot be used to satisfy the writing requirement. Independent study requirements:
- You must submit a detailed written proposal for your topic before I will approve your independent study project for credit. This proposal must be submitted to me in PDF format via email.
- Once I approve your topic, you must have the proposal approved by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
- After you commence work, I expect to receive email reports on your research and writing progress at least every 14 days.
- Your final paper must be at least 15 pages long but no longer than 25 pages for each hour academic credit sought. For example, a paper submitted for two hours of academic credit must be at least 30 pages long, but no longer than 50 pages.
- Your paper must be printed in 12-point, Times New Roman type with 1-inch margins on all sides.
- Your paper must be thoroughly footnoted. Endnotes are not permissible. All citations contained in your footnotes must strictly comply with the latest edition of The Bluebook.
- Your paper must have the following information on the cover page: (1) your name; (2) the title of the paper; (3) the date of submission; (4) the hours of credit sought; and, (4) the semester for which academic credit is sought.
- Your paper must be submitted simultaneously in both PDF and hard-copy formats.
- As to the PDF version, the file name and “re” line in the email should be your last name and “Independent Study.” For example, if your name is John Smith, the file name and “re” line in the email you use to submit the paper should be “Smith Independent Study.”
- As to the hard-copy version, your paper must be printed on 8.5 x 11, white paper and must be spiral or comb bound on the left margin. The hard-copy must have a white cardstock cover with the necessary information photocopied thereon.
- Your paper is due in my electronic and hard-copy mailboxes on the first day of the examination period for the semester in which credit is sought.
During the summer, I teach Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure and Evidence for the BAR/BRI Louisiana Bar Review program. I also teach the MPRE (Multi-State Professional Responsibility Exam) course offered by BAR/BRI each Summer, Fall and Winter.
