Course Details

Violence Reduction & Change

This will be a seminar style course where students will spend the first half of the course learning about the statutory and regulatory framework that shapes governmental efforts to prevent and address crime and violence. During the second half of the course, students will work in teams of four (comprised of two law students and two Stateville students) on their own policy platform package. They will draft legislation, regulations and/or ballot initiatives, produce white papers identifying the problem their proposal aims to address and also produce op-eds/advocacy materials supporting their platform. The class will culminate in mock legislative hearings during which students will present their solutions to a panel of local and state elected officials.
