Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
Description of how the Topics course differs substantively from the Seminar course:
1. Pedagogy. At the law school, the term "seminar" denotes a classroom experience in which there is a structured discussion that revolves around pre-assigned readings. By contrast, a "course" denotes a classroom experience in that may be discussion-based, but also lecture-based, problem-based, simulation-based or any combination of the above.
2. Credits. Seminars are offered only for two credits. the Courses may be offered for 1, 2 or 3 credits.
3. Enrollment. All law school seminars are capped at 16 students. Generic courses are not, by default, subject to an enrollment cap. We typically do not cap enrollments at the law school -- thus the presumption is that these courses will receive enrollments on par with other law school courses (between 10 and 140, depending upon course popularity)
4. Method of Evaluation. All law school seminars are graded on the basis of research paper. Generally, the research paper is of the 8K word variety, which satisfies the upper level writing requirement in order to receive a JD degree. In contrast, the proposed generic course allows a variety of methods of evaluations to be used.
Please have course assigned to "JD level 04, LLMs and SJDs level 02"
