Title of Presentation : Advocacy Outside of the Courtroom: Social Change through Policy & Legislative Advocacy

Names of all Presenters : Elizabeth Cooper

Short Abstract : Justice education must be broadened to include teaching our students how to achieve social change through policy and legislative advocacy, not just through the more traditional route of litigation. This session will use an array of interactive methods to help clinicians establish policy/legislation projects or clinics and to support those already running such programs – and it is designed to address the needs of clinicians globally. Specifically, we will identify the key factors to consider when developing a policy/legislative project or clinic; the essential skills students participating in policy/legislative clinics should acquire; the ways in which clinicians can teach these essential skills; and the key activities and exercises in which students could and should engage to ensure they have acquired these skills.
