ABOUT PROFESSOR NATHENSON’S ILS CONDITIONAL COURSE
In this one-week section of the summer ILS Conditional course we will learn about learning law. The substantive law we will use towards that goal will be Intellectual Property, namely, the law of copyrights, patents, trademarks, and more. We will read cases, historical materials, statutes, and Constitutional provisions.
LAPTOPS, HARD COPIES
Laptops are permitted for note-taking though I strongly encourage you to take notes by hand. Any assigned materials and your case briefs must be printed out.
There will be a closed-book final examination administered on an anonymous basis at the conclusion of our week of study. The examination will be based on materials and skills we learned in our week of work together. It can include anything from the assigned materials, any in-class handouts, and anything that is discussed in class. It will consist of multiple-choice and written-answer questions. I will provide you with relevant statutes and Constitutional provisions for use during the examination. Laptops will not be permitted during the examination.
