First Day Assignment Fall 2020

 

Number Description Topic Instructor Name First Day Assignment
6000 Taxes and Justice Glogower,Ariel
6050 US Legal Systems Rudesill, Dakota Welcome to our course on the US Legal System (course # 6050)!

I hope this note finds you and your loved ones healthy and resilient during these severely disrupted times.

Our class meets Tu/Wed/Th from 4:20 to 5:10. Our course will be entirely online throughout term. I will contact you in the coming days with zoom info, the full syllabus, etc.

There is a required text: Law in the United States (2d ed. 2016), by Charles Abernathy. I recommend ordering it online as soon as possible (there are some new copies and it looks like many used copies in good condition). I am checking to see if it is available as an e-book (but I doubt it). The Barnes & Noble campus bookstore will likely stock a few copies the week before term starts. But they may sell out, and again I strongly recommend ordering it online immediately to ensure you have the book before classes start.

The assignment for the first week is: pages 1-9 (Sources of US Law), 9-14 (How to Read a Case), 15-21 (Statutes and Common Law), and 127-37 (The American System of Legal Education).

I look forward very much to meeting you in a few weeks. Do not hesitate to reach out to me at rudesill.2@osu.edu if I can be of help as you prepare for the term to start.

Very Best,
DSR

Dakota S. Rudesill

Please bring a copy of the ad to our first class.  After carefully examining your ad, please prepare answers to the following questions:

1.To whom is the ad targeted?

2.Does it make any explicit claims or representations? If yes, what?

3.Does it make any implied claims or representations? If yes, what?

4.What evidence, if any, is mentioned in the ad to back up any claims, expressed or implied?

5.What conclusions may be incorrectly drawn by a consumer who reads the ad, but is not a sophisticated consumer?

6.Do you have any concerns that this ad may violate advertising law?  If so, explain.

Please upload your answers to the above-questions before class on Wednesday.  Please read Chapter 1 of the text book but do NOT research any advertising laws to complete this assignment.

We will spend most of the class period going through those problems and, with their aid, an introduction to contract drafting.

Please sign up on the TWEN site for the course. You’ll find the first set of readings in a folder marked “Unit 1.” (It’s comprised of Brown v. Board of Education I, Brown v. Board of Education II, and Bolling v. Sharpe.) Please read the three decisions and make some notes on one or two things that strike you most about them.

You should also find an initial copy of the Syllabus for the course and the Zoom link for our meetings on TWEN. (The Zoom meeting information is in a separate document under the “Syllabus” tab – it’s very clearly marked so you should have no trouble finding it.)
