Course Descriptions
Advanced Concepts in Corporate Law
This course explores cutting-edge concepts of fiduciary standards of review and standards of conduct arising under the leading Delaware corporate cases in this area, as well as the litigation process.
Criminal Trial Process
This course is designed to give you a broad overview and introduction to the criminal courts system. In this course we will examine the criminal court system and processes utilized in the United States. Specifically, we will cover the different types of courts, the various actors that are involved in the court process, and the court process itself. This course will also cover the procedures that govern criminal cases after the initiation of formal legal proceedings. We will learn about trials, trial-related issues (such as the charging process, discovery, jury selection, and verdicts), and plea bargaining as a substitute for trials. We will also learn about posttrial appellate and habeas corpus review of criminal cases.
Technology and the Law
This course is designed to inform candidates of existing and emerging issues involving the intersection of law and technology. The course presents, asynchronously, a series of interviews with judges, lawyers and specialists focusing on a particular use of technology in the practice of law including litigation, legal administration and legal issues relating to discovery.  After reviewing the prepared sessions, students will use on-line meeting tools to discuss the issues covered in the interviews and research concepts and ideas related to the particular topic.
International Money Laundering and Corruption
This course introduces students to the international and domestic laws enacted to thwart money laundering and corruption. An overview of anti-money laundering strategies aimed at attacking criminals through their financial activities and using financial trails to identify the various components of criminal networks will be provided.
U.S. Constitutional Law
Survey of constitutional law providing students with an overview of the following areas: Judicial, legislative and executive powers, property rights, due process, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to privacy and discrimination.
Digital Law: Cybersecurity and Privacy
Our global economy, national security, and personal communications depend on the efficient and reliable operation of the Internet and other forms of networked computer systems. Most Internet infrastructure is privately owned and operated. These systems are under constant attack from hackers, organized criminal groups, terrorists and other threats. This course examines the law and policy of foreign and domestic Internet governance, computer crime, online privacy and personal data protection, private infrastructure and the Law of Emergencies.
