Section 002, Fall 2019
Section Description Provided by Instructor
( 2 graded academic and 2 ungraded clinical credits)
This is the fieldwork section of the externship.
The Copyright Dispute Resolution Externship provides students the opportunity to learn how effectively to resolve copyright disputes through a weekly seminar and field work. The seminar will address the policies and doctrines of copyright law and the basic elements of copyright litigation and include not only traditional classroom discussion but also in-class simulations (such as conducting a witness examination in a copyright case). The field work will allow students, under the supervision of Cravath lawyers, to represent actual pro bono clients in real copyright disputes. Students will, as circumstances permit, evaluate a case; draft a complaint; work up motions for a preliminary injunction; prepare written discovery; take and defend depositions; draft motions; participate in settlement negotiations; and draft licensing agreements. A course concerning copyright law is a prerequisite.
