***Note: Federal Courts, Law 342, will be offered in the Spring semester only this academic year. Professor Curt Bradley will teach the course in the spring semester. While we regret that we were unable to schedule a fall section of Fed Courts, we will do our best to schedule the spring section at a time free of as many conflicts with related courses as the schedule will permit. The section will be large enough to accommodate all interested students.
