The course in Remedies focuses on the alternatives available to a court in responding to a legal wrong in civil litigation. Unlike courses that center on the definition of liability, Remedies focuses on what a victorious litigant can get as a result of her victory, and how to get it. Accordingly, this course is of immense importance to those intending to be litigators, as the available remedy is a primary driver of litigation strategy. This course also seeks to go beyond the practical and address questions regarding the proper scope of a court's power to redress violations of legal rights in different contexts, the appropriate procedural structure for seeking and enforcing remedies, and the use of remedial law to incentivize conduct.

Topics to be discussed include money damages, injunctive relief, declaratory relief, preliminary relief, punitive damages, restitution and unjust enrichment, the contempt power, and fee shifting.
