Detroit Litigation Advocacy Workshop

LAW 733

The Detroit Litigation Advocacy Workshop ("D LAW") is a research-oriented course that provides students a unique opportunity to help shape the City of Detroit's public-interest litigation program. Each student will be responsible for researching litigation options available to the City on one or more specified topics (for example, consumer protection; environmental justice; housing; nuisance abatement). The final product will be a "white paper" laying out, in detail, how the City might use litigation to tackle problems in those areas. These white papers will be used by the Detroit Mayor's Office when formulating litigation strategies -- and will serve as a cornerstone for future collaborations between the City of Detroit and the Law School.
