This seminar is designed to enable each enrolled student to (in consultation with the Professor), identify and pursue a topic in California Legal History that is of strong interest to the student. Some of the topics chosen will have lessons for public policy choices that we face today. Topics are likely to include ones that focus on local circumstances and those that affect the entire state.
The Seminar class sessions will be devoted to student presentations, class discussions of the student projects, and a few short in-class exercises where students will be asked to reflect on the project presented in writing.
Interaction with Professor Prager before the start of the course is required
