Pubic Interest

The first assignment for the legal practice class is to analyze whether an exculpatory contract has violated “public interest” under California Civil Code Section 1668, and to write a memorandum on this issue.

Legal Practice Professor: “Do not rely on automatic spell-checkers. Always manually spell-check your legal writing. One time a student missed the ‘l’ in ‘public interest’…”

I think this beats yesterday’s “exception to exception” in Contracts.

When I took a break from my torts casebook I did a little googling and found a few law schools that are involved in the “pubic interest.”

USC Law has a foundation dedicated to this interest.
Duke Law has an Office.
Vanderbilt Law doesn’t seem to like Gore.
Wisconsin Law dedicates a whole week.
This faculty member at Northwestern Law even defended it.
William and Mary Law has an alum that envisioned…
Georgetown Law even has a whole list.
and who can forget the Canadians? U of Toronto Law School is known for its strong Advocacy program.
And while we are talking international, the law school at Boston College also thinks there’s an international dimension to it.
