Public Law and Policy Program

Public Law and Policy Program


In the classroom, we emphasize policy issues as a backdrop to the legal framework. We believe that lawyers who think through the policy ramifications of legal choices are capable of providing more sound advice and leadership in any situation. We also highlight the practical aspects of law, seeking always to convey an understanding of how courts, agencies, legislative bodies, and international forums function in the broad spectrum of public policy decision-making. And we devote consistent attention to the public’s role in such processes.
