Would you like a hands-on, live-client experience pursuing systemic social change for course credit in teams of talented law, business, education, and policy graduate students? Would you like to improve the lives of underserved children across the US and Brazil, while developing transactional, institutional design, management, and problem-solving skills valued by large law firms, public agencies, and social reform advocates alike?
If so, apply for the Spring or the Fall 2019 Public Education Policy Lab at the Law School's Center for Public Research and Leadership (CPRL).
This full-semester, 13-credit course (8 ABA Experiential Learning Credits) brings together, on site, talented upper-level graduate students from Columbia, Dartmouth, Michigan, NYU, Penn, Princeton, Stanford, UC Berkeley, Vanderbilt, and Yale to study public-sector structural change and conduct professionally guided live-client consulting projects to equalize access to high-quality public schools. Major and minor writing credit is available.
CPRL offers a limited number of tuition support awards of up to $20,000 for students demonstrating exceptional merit and need and committing to work in the education sector after graduation. Funding also is available for students planning to work in Brazil. CPRL offers all its students substantial job-placement support.
To learn more about this opportunity, join Professor James Liebman and current CPRL students for an informal discussion of the program over (non-pizza) lunch, Thursday, 10/11 at 12:00PM, JG602.
