Interdisciplinary Problem Solving (Law)

SW741, Section 003

Through a team-based, experiential, and interdisciplinary learning model, small groups of U-M graduate and professional students work with faculty to explore and offer solutions to emerging, complex problems. This course is offered through the Law School’s Problem Solving Initiative and the topics vary by semester.

Topic Description / Additional Information

In the U.S., the federal government funds key social services for the poor. However, individual states — which are rarely the focus of policy debates about social services — are often responsible for overseeing the provision of those services. In this class, multi-disciplinary student teams will focus on challenges to the delivery of social services in Michigan, including programs like Medicaid, SNAP, WIC, and cash assistance. Students will apply problem solving skills, learn from stakeholders and experts, and draw on insights from health sciences, public policy, law, and other fields to develop solutions that improve the delivery of social services to vulnerable populations.
