Course Policy and Syllabus

Course Objectives

                       Constitutional Law I covers the following major constitutional subjects: federal judicial power, federal legislative power, federal executive power, state regulatory power, and federalism. These topics are fundamental to understanding the American legal system and are critical to your ability to participate fully in this legal system. In addition, these areas of constitutional law are tested on both the multi-state and essay portions of the state Bar examination that you must pass to practice law. A mastery of this area of law is essential to your ability to succeed in your legal career.

Office Hours

            My office is room 253. General office hours are Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. and at other times by appointment. I maintain an open door policy and encourage students to stop by during office hours or to make an appointment when necessary.

            In addition, I may be reached in my office at 918-631-2444 or via e-mail at johnny-parker@utulsa.edu.

Attendance Policy

            Class attendance and participation are essential to a student’s understanding of course material and, ultimately, are critical to success in this class. Attendance will be taken every day, and students are responsible for keeping track of the number of absences they accrue. Students are permitted to miss four (4) class days without adverse consequences. After the fourth absence, I will lower a student’s grade one grade level for each subsequent absence. Thus, if a student misses five classes, a grade of A would be lowered to an A-; after six absences a grade of A would be lowered to a B+, etc… If a student misses eight (8) classes, he or she will be dropped from the course. Students should note that it will be difficult to do satisfactory work in this course if they miss classes.

            Tardiness (i.e. being late for class) will not be tolerated. You are prohibited from entering the classroom late unless: (1) I was contacted via email, telephone (including voice mail) or in person and made aware of the circumstances which caused or will cause you to be late for class. In the event of an unexpected emergency, you may, leave me a voice message on my office phone, or send an email and come to class without penalty. You will be responsible for verifying that you were not marked absent for the class.

Expert Evidence

_________________________________

This course reviews specific topics of scientific and expert evidence in more depth than is possible in the basic evidence course. We begin with an exploration of the philosophy of science and some of the problems of knowledge and belief. We will then look at specific areas of expert and scientific testimony. Topics to be covered include an introduction to the scientific method, basic principles of statistics and economics for lawyers, DNA evidence, fingerprinting and other forensic sciences, issues in experimental psychology and behavioral science, accident and crime reconstruction qualifying, deposing and examining experts and some considerations of the ethical issues and implications for law reform arising from scientific discovery. Additional subjects may be covered as conditions warrant. Some material will be on line and in handouts. The class will regularly feature guest lectures. The assessment in the class will be based on a final exam and class participation.
