For Monday--Section A

Wednesday audio. Essay VIII to be posted next Wednesday (April 19), due on the last day of class (Monday, April 24).

For Monday, prepare Introduction and History, Problem of Procedural Rules, and Modern Approach. We pick up where we left off: You are the Railroad; given the differences in possible legal rules, what is your procedural move and your argument in support? What were the five steps Justice Brandeis took to overrule Swift and create the new regime in Erie? How does Hanna follow Erie and how does it change the analysis when the FRCP are in play?

We will not get to the hypos until Wednesday, so they will be posted early next week.
