Course Description:

The dominant source of legal rights for employees today is a disorderly body of federal and state statutes and common law doctrines often called “employment law.” Ranging from Title VII to defamation law, from ERISA to workers’ compensation, from the Americans with Disabilities Act to the law of employee handbooks, employment law encompasses a vast body of law regulating the employment relationship. This course examines employment law doctrine and theory from a practical perspective. Problems and in-class exercises (such as mock depositions, client conferences, oral arguments, summary judgment arguments, jury instruction charge conferences and mediation sessions) drawn from litigated cases and counseling practice will illustrate how attorneys use these doctrinal rules and theoretical principles to control the legal consequences of their clients’ employment relationships. Grades in this highly interactive course will be based on periodic in-class exercises, written assignments and class participation.
