Advanced Litigation Seminar

This seminar focuses on civil litigation and settlement in theory and practice. It is intended for students who wish to pursue advanced, in-depth study of civil litigation and dispute resolution on a systemic basis, moving beyond individual doctrinal areas. Readings will be drawn primarily from recent scholarly literature on such topics as models of litigation (economic, psychological, and others), the functionality - or lack thereof - of the American litigation system, aggregate litigation, the role of insurance, and comparative regimes of litigation finance. Enrollment limited.
