LAWS 760 - Transportation Law

Credits: 2

Transportation plays a huge role in life and in law. This course focuses on a single case study to holistically analyze safety regulation, incident investigation, and product litigation. Students will engage with a range of legal and technical source materials to understand how lawyers (as well as legislators, regulators, executives, journalists, advocates, and engineers) confront a crisis that threatens human lives, challenges technical confidence, and undermines institutional credibility. These course materials will introduce students to transportation law, and the broader lessons that emerge from the classroom discussions will serve any public- or private-sector attorney who must navigate complexity and confusion in order to effectively serve a client.
