Professor Todd J. Zywicki: Courses Taught
Law 167 - Bankruptcy
Studies legal, economic, and social issues in bankruptcy
through a survey of the Bankruptcy Code and the previous Bankruptcy Act.
Considers bankruptcy liquidation and reorganization, as well as the role
of the courts and trustees in the bankruptcy process.
Law 102/103 - Contracts
Introduction to the principles of contract law, including
the consideration doctrine, offer and acceptance, promissory estoppel,
and the regulation of the bargaining process.
Law 172 - Business Associations
Provides a detailed introduction to the law and
economics of agency, partnerships, limited partnerships, and corporation
law. The second half the course focuses on publicly traded
corporations, focusing specifically on the nature of fiduciary duties.
Law 473 - Rule of Law Seminar
The purpose of this course is to explore first how the
Western conception of the rule of law emerged and became established,
and then to explore how the rule of law and constitutional government
produced freedom and prosperity in the Western world. Our intent
is then to explore the connection between these two core concepts in the
Western tradition of political and economic liberty and finally to
examine the "exportability" of these ideas to non-Western countries and
the former Soviet-type economies.
