Course Description
This class introduces graduate students to the processes by which ideas of public policy make their way into public law.  The course will examine a variety of case studies involving the interaction between public policy initiatives and how they have evolved into public law.  It will also involve critical examination of the processes that lead and impede the creation of law intended to serve the public interest.  The class requires students to read accounts of public law battles and to analyze them through different metrics, including assigned reading, independent research, class discussion, papers, and a final presentation.
