This is a full-year, two credit project-based learning course that satisfies the Center's capstone requirement. It is open only to Justice Action Center affiliates in their final year of study. The content and focus of the course will vary from year to year, but in general, students will be working on social justice projects under the supervision of JAC faculty members. In some years, students will work on individual or small-group projects, including, for example, a practice manual, model legislation, regulatory comments, a policy paper, or an amicus brief. Although these projects might involve different substantive areas of law, they will all focus on the use of law to effectuate social change. In other years, the course might focus on one project for the entire class. Information about the content of the class will be made available during registration. In years when students are working on individual projects, weekly seminar sessions will include peer review and commentary at each stage of the project (topic selection, outline, research plan, rough draft, and presentation).
