LAWS 5918. Reproductive Rights Lab. 3 Units.

In this course, students will complete research projects pertaining to cutting-edge issues in reproductive rights law. The lab will begin with an overview of the basics of the federal constitutional law pertaining to reproductive rights and related procedural issues. Students will then work individually on real-world research projects, such as drafting legal research memos, analyzing proposed legislation, and drafting litigation documents. Projects will be drawn from existing litigation, from bills proposed by state legislatures, and from national and Ohio-based reproductive rights organizations. Students will meet individually with the professor, supplemented by occasional group meetings. In the last class session, students will present their research projects to the group. Grades will be based primarily on the final written work product.
