Students will learn about the theory and also learn to create and evaluate solutions to problems that arise in these contexts. This course will also introduce students to the various methodology used in this field and facilitate acquiring an understanding of the differing procedural approaches, advocacy cultures, and societal interests that are encountered when working in diverse forums and with lawyers, laws, decision-makers, and procedures from other legal systems.
