Public Interest Advocacy Seminar
J.D. Course 366 | 2 credit hours
Where did the public-interest law movement come from and where is it headed? Who decides what’s in the “public interest”? Can litigation really produce social change? How can public-interest lawyers accomplish their goals outside the courts—through legislatures, administrative agencies, the media, and communities? What are the different models and strategies for public-interest advocacy, how well do they work, and how do we measure their success? How do public-interest lawyers get money to do their work?
Priority for enrollment is given to students enrolled in the Public Interest Law Scholars program ("PILS").
