Course Detail
Course Components:
The Leadership in Legal Innovation course provides an opportunity for students who have completed an entry-level i4J course to advance their understanding of and skills in legal innovation. Leadership students play a role within i4J in one of two ways: (1) active participation as a leader / mentor in an ongoing entry-level i4J course, mentoring students who are new to the program and assisting in facilitation of class activities and community engagement; or (2) active participation as a project leader for an ongoing i4J project, participating in research and collaborating with the program director, peers and community stakeholders to advance the work of i4J. Projects produced by this course include the Cost of Eviction Calculator, which was selected as a finalist in the Georgetown Law IronTech Lawyer Competition and became a leading advocacy tool for raising awareness about the downstream costs of eviction during COVID.
