LAW 7955 Creative Advocacy Lab
Community Engaged Learning
In the face of system-level failures like the widening access-to-justice gap, lawyers need to get creative. The Creative Advocacy Lab is an intensive, one-semester course that explores modes of legal advocacy beyond traditional client representation, re-envisioning lawyers as community educators, problem-solvers, and storytellers. In collaboration with community partners, students will use creative tools--like design thinking, narrative, plain language writing, and visual communication--to make legal information accessible to those who need it. Counts toward the experiential education requirement.
