Required On-Line Materials
Readings on the Internet will be assigned from time
to time during the year.
Supplemental readings will be made available on the Course Web Page. The
address is <home.sprynet.com/sprynet/reidenberg/contract98.htm>.
Registered students should log into the Virtual
Classroom. In addition, modifications to the syllabus will be announced
on the Virtual
During the course of the year, each student will be assigned a topic and
asked to prepare a short annotated bibliography of between five and ten
Internet sites with pertinent primary source materials.
My office is Room 334 (tel: 212-636-6843). I am usually available
in my office both before and after class for conferences as well as other
times by appointment . In addition, I will hold "virtual office hours"
and can be reached via e-mail, 24 hours/day at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
This course will have a letter-graded, open-book final examination covering
all the materials assigned for the course. Class participation, and
the Internet research assignment will be graded PASS/FAIL. A "FAIL"
in either class participation or the Internet research assignment will
result in a failing grade for the entire course. Attendance and advance
class preparation are mandatory. More than three unexcused absences will
result in an automatic failure for the course.
For the first class, please read pp. 1-12 in the
casebook. We will proceed through the materials in the casebook,
occassionally skipping sections or cases. I will usually request
that you read an average of three cases ahead of where we conclude the
day. By the end of the first semester, I hope to cover the material
through Chapter 4 along with various supplemental materials that will be
added during the course of the semester. The supplemental materials
will be distributed through this web page and the assignments will be announced
in class or by e-mail.
