    Course Description from Course Catalog 5139

    Additional Info

    This course is structured as a combination of lecture, discussion and research and writing exercises. The source documents and materials for this course will consist of statutes, regulations, judicial and administrative briefs and decisions, as well as studies of selected government projects and actions. All materials are new in the sense that a unique compendium of course materials, from hard copies and the internet, will be generated to form the basis for a future published text of study. Every class session will include questions and discussion of the issues presented and the background materials.


    Evaluation of student work is to be based on class participation, including three short papers on topics raised during the course (2-3 pages each) (50%), and a take home final examination (50%).
