The JAC Colloquium is a required, graded, two-credit seminar exclusively for JAC affiiliates and taught by JAC faculty. All day-division students must take the Colloquium in the fall semester of their second year. Evening division students may take the Colloquium at any time before they graduate. Through case studies, Colloquium students learn about the potential of law to effectuate social change. We will consider different approaches to social change through law, including class action litigation, individual client representation in criminal and civil contexts, legislative advocacy, and community organizing. We will consider critiques of these models and alternative approaches and study organizations involved in social change through law.
