Legislative Advocacy

Course Number: LAW 6930 Credits: 2

The course is designed to provide students with an understanding of the tools necessary to become an effective advocate before legislative bodies, their members, and staff.  Students will gain the practical skills that legislative advocates use to effectively exercise the right to petition the government and redress grievances, understand how professionals effectively advocate on behalf of a cause, company or non-profit entity, review laws and regulations affecting lobbying and lobbyists, and comprehend the competitive landscape of public policy.  Over the semester, students will work through several distinct public policy problems and participate in exercises meant to simulate advocacy situations, culminating with students building a suite of advocacy documents and tools related to a policy issue of their choice.
