Remedies is a practice-oriented exploration of the substantive and strategic issues associated with the remedies available to parties in constitutional, contract and tort litigation. The class will explore the complexities lurking in the various measures of damages; restitution and unjust enrichment; provisional and permanent injunctive relief; specific performance; and associated procedural issues and defenses. Along with learning the law, students will be exposed to the powerful roles played by the judiciary and juries in determining outcomes.

The overriding objective of the class is to prepare the students for the practice of law. A grasp of the litigation process, including remedies, is an essential step in becoming a competent lawyer. Thus, the class is recommended for all law students, regardless of their anticipated area of specialization.
