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 Classroom. 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 <reidenberg@sprynet.com>. 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.
