The course in Remedies explores the stakes of civil litigation: that is, what tangible results can lawyers for plaintiffs achieve for their clients, and how can lawyers for defendants resist those outcomes. The subject matter of the cases in the class is trans-substantive, and we will cover particular remedies available in contract, tort, and constitutional cases, among others. More generally, though, we will cover money damages (including damages for pain and suffering and emotional distress, and punitive damages), injunctive relief in both private and public-law litigation, restitution and disgorgement of unjust enrichment, and ancillary remedies (including attorneys' fees and contempt). In terms of approach, aside from covering the black-letter doctrine, the course will be both theoretical and practical. We will both examine the appropriate purposes of different civil remedies and engage with the many interesting strategic questions for lawyers on both sides of various kinds of litigation. As a result, this course is appropriate for anyone planning a career in civil litigation, or those interested in theories of redress and the proper scope of judicial power.
