The class is conducted entirely in Spanish. The goal is to assist students who already speak the language with some facility (either because they are native-speakers, or were raised in bilingual families, or lived in a Spanish-speaking country, or studied Spanish in high school and/or college) to develop a repertoire of legal vocabulary and phrases that will benefit them in their professional lives during and after law school. A secondary, but very significant, goal is to expose students to historical/social/cultural/class issues that might arise in their interactions with or representation of Spanish-speaking clients. The course is built around readings, exercises, and presentations in some or all of the following doctrinal areas: Constitutional Law, Family Law, Immigration Law, Criminal Law, Anti-Discrimination Law, Housing Law, International Human Rights Law, Environmental Law, Employment Law, and Civil Rights Law. Each week students are responsible for completing readings in Spanish of court opinions, journal articles, newspaper stories, and other materials on the subject of the week. These readings serve as the basis of the guided discussions that take place in each class session. In addition, each student is responsible for planning at least one oral presentation. All students are also involved in doing weekly mini-presentations, role-playing exercises (lawyer-client, for example), and/or oral exercises. The instructor will also make available materials on grammar and syntax and, where needed, will spend some class time on relevant language exercises.
