  • Law and Social Innovation: Creative Problem Solving


    Credits: 2

    This course explores the role of the lawyer as creative problem solver.  In it, students assess the strategies and tools lawyers use to promote social innovation and solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.  Students put the skills they have developed throughout law school to use in contexts where those skills are most desperately needed.  They also hone additional skills that every lawyer needs: e.g., the ability to work effectively in groups, run a productive meeting, collaborate on document drafting and production, think creatively to construct elegant solutions to complex problems, “pitch” ideas, and conduct group presentations.
