POLS 341 Justice Lab: Contemporary Issues in Law and Public Policy

Justice Lab is an advanced course for students seeking to examine contemporary justice issues. The course will provide a challenging and intellectually rigorous environment in which students ask not only what are pressing justice questions, but also develop practical tools to address these issues. Students in the course will work in collaborative teams to select issues for the "lab" to address, research all aspects of the issue selected, and coordinate and participate in drafting a series of policy papers and other "tools" for change. The course aims to create an an environment similar to that of a think tank allowing students to refine research, analysis, problem-solving, presentation, and writing skills.
