The Resurgent Role of Legal History

in Modern Judicial Decisionmaking

Grading Policies

The final grade will be based upon (i) a  thesis paper advocating the relevance of legal history on a modern legal issue, and (ii) class participation during the semester.  The final grade will be calculated on a 80% (paper), 20% (participation) basis.

The thesis paper should be submitted on the last exam day of the semester.  A draft may be submitted earlier (at least two weeks before the final paper is due) for purposes of feedback, brainstorming, and constructive criticism.  I will always be available before and after class to go over ideas with students.

While class attendance is mandatory, absences will be overlooked if the absent student has a reasonable excuse.
