Professor Carlin Meyer
Generally, considers the significance of gender in shaping law and the legal system. Students study the origins of the feminist movement and its theoretical underpinnings, read feminist legal theorists and their critics, and examine them in a variety of contexts, including criminal justice, family law, employment law, bankruptcy, torts, and legal ethics. We read books, law review articles, and cases and hear from occasional guest lecturers. Students do in-class project(s) and are encouraged to work and "present" together. Enrollment by both male and female students is encouraged. In some semesters, students are required to keep a journal and complete a take-home exam. Enrollment limited.
