The course in Remedies explores the stakes of civil litigation: that is, what tangible results lawyers for plaintiffs may achieve for their clients, and how lawyers for defendants resist those outcomes. The subject matter of the cases in the class is trans-substantive, though we will cover particular remedies available in contract, tort, IP, and constitutional cases, among others. The course is, however, more about Remedies law in general, rather than the law in any particular substantive area. To wit, we will cover money damages (including damages for property loss, physical injury, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and punitive damages), injunctive relief and specific performance, and restitution and disgorgement of unjust enrichment. In terms of approach, aside from covering the black-letter doctrine, the course will be both theoretical and practical. We will examine both 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 more interested in theories of redress and the proper scope of judicial power.
