Emory Law Courses Offered to Emory Community

Emory Law offers three courses to the Emory community in the spring semester 2018. Eligible employees receive the courtesy scholarship. Courses include:

Health Policy: Obamacare vs. Trumpcare (3 credit hours)
Tuesdays, 1:45 pm - 3:45 pm

This course considers some of the toughest problems in current health law and policy.  Which countries have the best health care systems, and why? What roles should government play in health care, and what roles should it avoid?  Does the U.S. make too many social problems into medical ones, or too few? What is the best way to support the cost of care for those who are too sick or too poor to afford it? How can we spend less on health care and get more for our money? To what degree should the future health care system be controlled by physicians? How can individuals and communities become healthier? How can racial disparities in health care and health be reduced? How can the health care system best serve an aging population? What policies would most effectively further innovation? Finally, how has law defined these problems and how can legal change facilitate their solution

The American Legal System
Thursdays, 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

This course introduces the constitutional principles, governmental structures, and fundamental legal rules that define the American legal system. It explores the structure and role of the U.S. judicial system and introduces students to the basic principles of legal reasoning.

Higher Education Law
Thursdays, 5:00 - 8:00 pm

This course exposes a range of administrative challenges in higher education that entails legal and ethical implications, beginning with the basis from which higher education law originates, current (case, state and regulatory) law as well as risk management and liability issues for higher education.
