This course examines how lawyers and courts craft legal and equitable remedies, including damages, injunctions, and restitution. It helps to reinforce and build upon concepts to which you were introduced in lower course in contracts, torts, and various statutory and constitutional settings.
Many of your law school courses will focus on causes of actions that arise under common law, statutes, or regulation, but minimize the topic of remedies for the harms identified by those causes of action. Remedies, however, are a primary reason that parties may decide to litigate. This course aims to help you think in a more creative and rigorous manner to analyze how best to prosecute or defend the issue of remedies in a law suit. We will also look at how remedies (or the potential of remedies) affect policy.
