475B Wealth and Poverty Lab

This spring-semester Lab is open only to students who (1) were enrolled in the fall-semester Lab and (2) have the permission of the instructors prior to spring registration. The Lab will provide students the opportunity to develop and enact specific legal and/or policy proposals to address issues highlighted in the fall-semester Lab. This Lab is a 2-credit, fast-track course will meet for the first 8 weeks of the spring semester, though work on policy proposals will likely last throughout the semester.  Students should expect to develop proposals in accordance with several interim deadlines and to meet with faculty frequently to review their progress. It is expected that students may elect for their projects to satisfy the law school’s upper-level writing requirement.
