Because this is a new course that has never been taught before, either here or elsewhere, course content and the syllabus are subject to modification over the course of the semester. There is no book or other published materials, so the assignments will be primarily linked to cases on Lexis and Westlaw, websites, and material on Blackboard. Some material, such as wind leases, will be distributed in hardcopy.
