Remedies & Equity

B603 is taught by S. Conrad

This course will introduce students to a wide range of legal and equitable remedies. There will be two required textbooks: (1) the classic hornbook Law of Remedies: Damages-Equity-Restitution (THIRD EDITION, 2018), by Dan B. Dobbs and Caprice L. Roberts (in hardback); and (2) the classic from 1985 Line by Line: How to Edit Your Own Writing, by Claire Kehrwald Cook. The course will use the problem method, rather than the case method. With much briefer reading assignments than the case method requires, we can increase both breadth of coverage and narrowness of focus on the remedial elements of the litigation and settlement situations we address. The course textbooks and the planned pedagogical approach are very practice-oriented, with emphasis on "black-letter" law, policy factors, and strategy and tactics of litigation/settlement. Round-table class discussion is very important in the course. There will be several blindly graded Writing Assignments; and students will be required to revise some Writing Assignments in accord with feedback given in the initial blind grading.
