Complex Problem Solving will teach the skills students need to analyze and develop interdisciplinary action plans to address multi-faceted problems. The overarching principle of the course is that effective client-centered advocacy requires a diverse array of skills - both legal and non-legal. Working from a hypothetical fact pattern based on an actual case, students will work collaboratively to develop strategies to address the problem in the following areas: litigation, public relations, coalition-building and lobbying. The course will offer numerous opportunities for students to develop the necessary skills through simulations.
