LAW 5650 - Federal Complex Litigation


Credit(s): 3
This advanced civil procedure course addresses topics essential to modern civil litigation when cases involve high stakes, multiple parties, or multiple tribunals. Building on the knowledge of the 1L civil procedure course, it introduces students to procedural devices that relate to mass torts and aggregate litigation. The course explores the social and policy implications inherent in aggregate litigation and tort reform efforts, as well as the strategic considerations for attorneys litigating such cases. Topics include multidistrict litigation, mass joinder, and class actions, as well as the increasing use of arbitration as an alternative approach to resolving complex cases.
