Advanced Legal Analysis

This course focuses on analyzing rights and remedies in selected cases and problems. It reviews, builds on, and reinforces concepts from torts, contracts, and property with an emphasis on developing a theoretical understanding of legal and equitable principles as well as practical skills in analysis and argument. The aim of the course is to assist students in developing the foundational skills necessary to assimilate, synthesize, and apply doctrinal learning more effectively in response to hypothetical scenarios, problems, different genres of questions, and writing projects in a variety of settings, including: in law school courses, in professional law practice, and on the bar exam. (Students not mandated to enroll in ALA may petition Professor Dizon to enroll in this class.)

Grading and method of evaluation:
Letter grade only. Students will be graded on two take-home assignments, class participation, a midterm, and a final exam.
