Course Notes: (Hybrid)  The UH registration system instruction mode for this course is listed in parenthesis. After student registration opens, there may be instruction mode changes to this course up through two weeks before the first day of classes for the term, but notice of such changes will be sent to then-registered students. Hybrid means that some of the weekly class sessions are virtual, and some are face-to-face. By definition, the hybrid instruction mode only applies to a course that meets two or more times a week. The instructor’s syllabus should indicate which regular days are virtual and which are face-to-face. A physical classroom may be assigned for the virtual class sessions to give students a location in the Law Center to join them. If the course has a final examination, it will be conducted in a classroom in face-to-face mode requiring your physical presence. Other assessment, such as a mid term exam, may also be in a classroom.

Quota= 16.
