401 - Agency (2 hours)
A study of the principal and agent relationship and rights and obligations of third parties with regard to principal and agent. Agency is one of the most practical and useful courses you can take. Virtually everyone who practices any type of civil law will face agency issues on a regular basis, whether it be in contract, tort, fraud or business relationships. The course is taught by an adjunct professor who has a wide ranging civil and criminal litigation practice (from employment discrimination and civil rights to business and personal injury) and uses the class to teach practical litigation skills and tips for the civil practitioner, breathing life into legal concepts learned in various other courses, such as contract, torts, civil procedure and evidence.
