This is a survey course on the practical results of litigation -- everything a court can do for a claimant who has been wronged. We will survey the principal remedies: compensatory damages; preventive, reparative, and structural injunctions; declaratory remedies; restitution; punitive damages; statutory remedies; and attorney's fees. We will constantly ask what the plaintiff can get, why she can get that, why she can't get more, and which remedy is best for her. Our ultimate questions will be what courts are trying to accomplish with the remedies they offer and how the available remedies relate to the substantive rights that the law protects.
