Tulane Law School strives to create opportunities that enhance our students' practical skillsets in order to better prepare them for their jobs following law school. Through partnerships with local legal professionals, alumni, employers and law school faculty, Tulane Law works to supplement the classroom experience with programs such as Intersession "Boot Camp", externships, judicial clerkships and pro bono opportunities.

 
 
  
Employment Discrimination Seminar

Course Description
This course is designed to provide in-depth coverage of some of the most currently controversial subjects in employment discrimination and to provide the students with an opportunity to write a substantial scholarly paper dealing with an employment discrimination topic of their choosing that I have approved.  Completion of this paper would satisfy the upper class writing requirement as the students will receive three (3) academic credits.  The course will be divided into three components:  The class will meet at a regularly scheduled day and time once per week (as is typical for seminar courses) for the first third of the semester to discuss the assigned material.  For the following third of the semester each students will meet with me individually once per week to discuss the progress on her or his paper.  For the final third of the course, the class will again meet once per week to give each student an opportunity to present his or her paper to the class for comment and analysis.  Each student is responsible for choosing his or her paper topic and will be expected to have chosen a paper topic during the intersession period, to be handed in at the beginning of the first class meeting.  Employment Discrimination law is a mandatory prerequisite for this course.  Enrollment will be limited. Professor Friedman plans to invoke a rule penalizing students for failure to be prepared and/or excessive absenteeism. (3 credits)
