Course Description
This course provides a comprehensive overview of America’s varying frameworks for regulating non-compete agreements, its antitrust roots, and the effect that broadening and curtailing the availability of restrictive covenants has on the fundamental right to work, implicating rights inherent in but not expressed by the Constitution. This course will explore both the common law and statutory approaches for restrictive covenants across the country. Students will learn practical skills such as parsing various theoretical and statutory frameworks and applying those varying frameworks to disparate business models and fact sets.

Audit Policy: Prof. Bascuas allows large classes (more than 25 students) to be audited so long as there is space available. Students who are auditing must sit in the furthest row and may not use computers or any other electronic devices in the room. Because they are not formally enrolled in the class, students who are auditing may not participate at all: They cannot ask or answer questions or otherwise participate in class discussion in any way whatsoever. Nor can they discuss the material with Prof. Bascuas at office hours or any other time or place. Auditing is just listening quietly without any interference.
