Update (9/9): My students get to choose what topics we will discuss during the second half of my “Advanced Topics in Law” course, and based on the total number of votes, the most popular topics are as follows:
A. Transgender athletes and the law (10 votes).
B. Two-way tie: (i) small business firms/startups and (ii) abortion rights in the post Roe v. Wade world (8 votes each).
C. Three-way tie: (i) hostile takeovers and the law, (ii) new global tax treaty, and (iii) healthcare law (7 votes each).
I will update my syllabus to reflect these results.
Below is my one-page syllabus for a graduate-level course on “advanced business law topics” that I will be teaching this semester. During the first half of the semester, I am assigning two movies, “The Social Network” and “Blade Runner“; two documentaries, “Hot Coffee” and “Made You Look” (shout out to my T.A. Antonella for recommending “Made You Look” to me); and an episode (see here) from season 3 of the series “Entourage”. My students will select the topics to be covered during the second half of the semester.
