Patrick D. Goodman
M.Ed. UCLA, 1992
J.D. Columbia, 1996
This course is about litigation after the court has found the need to provide relief. Through the active use of problems, advocacy assignments, and cases, the course explores remedies in civil litigation, such as money damages, injunctive relief, and restitution. These remedies are examined within the context of many subjects, including Torts, Contracts, Property, and Civil Rights law, but with a focus on the various remedies available, and the consequences of choosing one form or amount of relief over another. Important note: The quality of student participation in two intensive oral advocacy assignments is considered by the instructor when entering a grade for this course.
By the end of the course, students will be able to interpret and apply case law and statutes to determine how a court might resolve a dispute about the appropriate remedy for a particular harm.
