Optimizing Government Project

Course Modules

We have developed course modules to teach students traditional legal concepts in a variety of courses using examples drawn from the world of codes and standards:

Each course module includes a teaching guide, which features a topic overview, readings, and discussion questions, plus PowerPoint slides. For the standard essential patents and preemption modules, original case studies are available to use for class discussion.

The modules are appropriate for use in a wide range of courses, including:

Administrative Law

Constitutional Law

Environmental Law

Intellectual Property

Local Government Law

Planning Law

Property Law

Real Estate Law

Statutory Interpretation

The materials were developed under the auspices of the Penn Program on Regulation with support from the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and are free to use, duplicate, edit, and adapt to your teaching needs.
