Interdisciplinary Problem Solving (Law)

SW741, Section 001

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

Students may apply for the course using the PSI application system (https://problemsolving.law.umich.edu/) March 18 - April 1, 2019.

This class is an interdisciplinary problem solving class offered at the Law School through the Problem Solving Initiative (PSI). Narratives around combatting human trafficking are narrowly construed, with white cisgender girls typically portrayed as the victims of heteronormative sex trafficking. Such narratives, and interventions meant to aid trafficking victims, overlook LGBTQ+ communities and fail to address their needs. In this class, students will work with stakeholders and incorporate insights from law, social work, public policy, health sciences, and other fields to identify interventions designed to help LGBTQ+ trafficking victims.

This class is open to all University of Michigan graduate and professional students. Please note: Non-Law students are responsible for checking with their own schools, colleges, or units to learn if a PSI class will count toward graduation or other departmental requirements. SOCIAL WORK students - This will count as elective credit toward the MSW.

Non-law graduate/professional students may apply for the course using the PSI application system (https://problemsolving.law.umich.edu/) March 18 - April 1, 2019. After the initial application period, students seeking to apply can contact problemsolving@umich.edu.
