Intellectual property (IP) gives legal protection, generally for a limited time period, to intellectual creations and innovation, through copyright, patent, trademark, and related laws. It is an excellent subject to study in a global perspective. Foreign IP laws and international agreements and institutions are increasingly important in the modern global economy. IP-related disputes—such as whether international agreements permit developing countries to limit patent rights in order to reduce the cost of medicines for AIDS and other pandemics—have been among the most heated topics recently in international commercial relations. This course will give students analytical skills, practical knowledge, and background context concerning transnational IP issues. It will begin with a short overview of copyright, patent, trademark, and related laws, and a short introduction to the international system of treaties/agreements, institutions, and choice-of-law principles for IP.

This course examines sentencing, the portion of the criminal process that often matters most to the defendant and to society. The course covers state law, federal law (including the federal sentencing guidelines), and the death penalty. Because far more cases result in a sentencing than go to trial, and because the doctrines and rules that control sentencing can be very complex, the subject is important and challenging. The course is useful for those planning to practice criminal law or those considering it, as well as for those considering federal judicial clerkships. Typically , the grade for the course is determined by a final exam and a sentencing exercise.

The LLM Mentor Externship incorporates two of UST Law’s curricular innovations -- the Mentor Externship Program and the Foundations of Justice course -- to provide LLM students a unique inside view of the American system of justice. Each LLM student is matched with a “mentor” who is active in the legal profession. This relationship is supplemented and supported by the MEFJP course, in which students explore the practical aspects of crafting a professional identity as a lawyer, and reflect together on the fundamental theoretical and moral principles that shape the identity of lawyers across different legal and social cultures. The MEFJP is tailored to help LLM students address the particular challenges of bridging the difference between the legal and social culture of the United States, and the different legal and social cultures in which the LLM students received their primary legal degrees.

In the business externship, students have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience by working in the in-house legal department of a business or in the corporate/business practice of a law firm. Students also come together weekly for a classroom component, taught by the course professor(s), which involves exercises and reflection regarding the experiential learning in their placements. Externship students will be expected to track and complete 150 hours of work in this course, with at least 130 of those hours devoted to fieldwork, and students will participate in the classroom component as well. Enrollment in the externship is by application only. To be eligible for a credit-earning externship, a student must first complete a minimum of 28 credits of study. Externship students must be in good standing. Externship students may be subject to other prerequisites/policies as required by the placement.

Through this course, non-lawyers will gain a better understanding of the ways that attorneys are trained to navigate complex situations. Careful reading and analysis of case law and statutes will prepare students to address the ambiguity of many scenarios that arise in compliance work, emphasizing the importance of critical thinking and argument. The course will also introduce students to the common law method by which doctrine is created; the importance and authority of statutes, codes, and regulations; and the structure of the U.S. legal system and its various actors and venues. The U.S. doctrines of contract and tort liability will form the substantive underpinning for the course, both because a knowledge of these areas is foundational for many later law courses and also because professionals working in the compliance field encounter these areas of law.

Criminal Practice is a practical class for those students who are committed to pursuing the vocation of criminal law. While Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure cover essential statutes and precedents, Criminal Practice teaches students how to use that knowledge and ethically practice criminal law in the field. For example, in Criminal Law students may have learned what a suppression hearing is, and in Criminal Procedure they will have studied the law that can be relied upon to suppress evidence. Criminal Practice builds on that knowledge and covers the actual preparation and presentation of a suppression motion-how to write the motion (and response), how to prevent evidence at the hearing, and how to interact with clients and agents before, during, and after the hearing. Because the course is rooted in practice, much of the student work is done in the form of exercises, which track the work done throughout the criminal case. As much as possible, these exercises are crafted to reflect the challenges faced in real cases.

Restorative justice is an interdisciplinary course which explores the world-wide movement of using restorative practices to respond to harm. Restorative justice is a philosophical and practical approach to harm which seeks to bring together victim-survivors, the broader community and, in some cases, perpetrators to promote accountability and healing. The course will examine both criminal and non-criminal harm and will delve into how restorative practices are utilized as a creative and humane path to healing and, where appropriate, an alternative to punishment. Students will learn what restorative justice is, its foundations, and its broad applications in society and law. Additionally, through the course, students will engage various guest speakers who have experienced or used restorative practices as an instrument of justice and restoration. Practitioners who are expert in the field will teach students through group exercises skills and practices that are integral to the effective use of restorative justice. Lastly, students will learn about the nature of harm and its effects and will explore the role of the lawyer as healer and the related values and skills that attend this vocation.

The LLM Mentor Externship incorporates two of UST Law’s curricular innovations -- the Mentor Externship Program and the Foundations of Justice course -- to provide LLM students a unique inside view of the American system of justice. Each LLM student is matched with a “mentor” who is active in the legal profession. This relationship is supplemented and supported by the MEFJP course, in which students explore the practical aspects of crafting a professional identity as a lawyer, and reflect together on the fundamental theoretical and moral principles that shape the identity of lawyers across different legal and social cultures. The MEFJP is tailored to help LLM students address the particular challenges of bridging the difference between the legal and social culture of the United States, and the different legal and social cultures in which the LLM students received their primary legal degrees.
