Policy Practicum: The Santa Clara County Litigation & Policy Partnership (SCCLPP) (807G): This policy lab partners with the Office of the County Counsel for the County of Santa Clara. Students in the lab will work with the leadership and deputies of the office on both litigation and policy matters related to urgent local challenges. SCCLPP projects may include issues from a range of fields: environmental protection, consumer protection, criminal justice, land use law, the rights of immigrant residents, public health, election law, and local finance.

The seminar portion of the course will meet six afternoons of the quarter (days TBD) from 4:15-6:15, one of which is for final presentations with SCCC attorneys and may, pandemic rules permitting, take place at the SCCC office. Elements used in grading: Attendance, Performance, Class Participation, Written Assignments.
