Please Note: The University of Pittsburgh School of Law's Barco Library is OPEN during regular library hours for Pitt Law faculty and students only.

75% of the course grade will be based on a research paper. For law students, the expected length and complexity of the paper will meet the standard for satisfying the upper-level writing requirement. For other students, the expected length and complexity of the paper will be tailored to the expectations of their degree program.
25% of the course grade will be based on course participation. The course participation grade will be based principally on each student’s preparing and leading (or co-leading) class discussion with respect to one day’s worth of assigned reading.
