All Spring 2010 Courses - Details

Tocqueville's Democracy in America
Course Number: 503-0-01 McConnell 2 Units
This course is on the "reading group" model, based on class discussion rather than lecture. Each week, the class will read a certain portion of Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America, and several students will prepare short discussion papers. We will focus on aspects of the book that bear on constitutional issues, broadly defined.

This section will be limited to an enrollment of 16 students, who will be selected by lottery (8 Law and 8 Non-Law, graduate or upper division, students)

Attention Non-Law Students: Non-Law student enrollment in this course will be determined by a lottery. To bid for this course, you must complete and submit a Non-Law Student Course Add Request Form to the Law School Registrar's Office (room 100). Deadline will be announced prior to the start of Spring Quarter. You do not need a signature from the instructor on the form. After the deadline, a lottery will be run. You will receive an email notice from the Law School Registrar's Office before the first day of the class on your acceptance in the class or placement on a waitlist. Add Request Forms are available at the Law School Registrar's Office.
