Remedies – 6200
This is an extremely practical course. It is about what will make you, as a lawyer, valuable to your clients. They will consult you and pay for your services because of your ability to achieve legal remedies for their wrongs. What then is it that you may be able to do for them? This course deals with the answers to that question. In it, we will explore the fundamental remedies — damages, injunctions, restitution, and declaratory relief. The questions we will ask throughout are what can the plaintiff (or the defendant) get? Why that and not more? Which of the available remedies is best? What are the strategic and practical ways to achieve the desired result? Remedies integrates threads from different parts of the law school curriculum and is a good vehicle for testing theories of what law is all about.
