Gender Law in Practice

3.00 crs.

Students in this course explore gender law in a variety of contexts, and develop practice-skills through a simulation.  Students explore issues of gender through individual and small-group presentations and practice-oriented exercises.  Practice exercises include drafting a complaint, taking a deposition, and researching and writing substantive motions.  At the end of the course, students will produce a portfolio of their work that may be used in pursuing employment.  The course is open to second and third year students, with preference given to third year students. Students completing the course with a C or above earn one skills credit and three experiential learning credits, and satisfy the Law and Poverty Requirement.
