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.
