New course description for Law and Public Policy

I’ve updated the course description for LAW5724, Law and Public Policy, which will be offered in the MU School of Law in Spring 2017:

This course provides students with a framework for making decisions about the policies that governments should adopt to respond to important public problems.  It takes an interdisciplinary perspective and argues that decision-makers manage four kinds of risk: litigation risk, political risk, policy risk and implementation risk.  Students are introduced to techniques for identifying and minimizing such risks, and apply these techniques to real-world policy problems.  Guest speakers also provide a perspective on the challenges of policy choice.
