The first half of the semester will feature student-directed discussions of chapters in Education Law Stories (Olivas and Schneider eds) plus Berkeley Law student papers written the last time I taught this class. In the second half of the semester each student will present a draft of an education law story he or she has prepared for the seminar. Student papers will explore the actors, the social and legal context, the strategy, the later impact and so on of the legal dispute they examine. Original research beyond reading legal decisions will be required. Student papers may satisfy the Writing Requirement, and all papers will be at least 30 pages in length and will be rewritten in response to instructor comments and fellow student feedback.

This course may satisfy the Writing Requirement.
