    This field placement is one part of a three-part immersive semester in education law and policy taught at Columbia Law School, through its Center for Public Research and Leadership (CPRL).

    CPRL’s intensive, full-semester seminar and field placement immerses students in the theory and practice of managing, governing, and transforming the public systems and social-sector organizations that deliver public education in the U.S. and abroad. Hosted at Columbia, this experiential offering has three components:

    A comprehensive seminar in the design, governance, regulation, democratic accountability and transformation of P-12 school systems and allied public- and social-sector organizations

    Skills training in a range of twenty-first century problem-solving competencies, including working in diverse teams to address multi-dimensional problems; design thinking; taking full advantage of difference and diversity; collaborative inquiry; quantitative and qualitative analysis and measurement; organizational macro- and micro-design; project and product management; client-centered and policy-focused information gathering; and the presentation of professional advice to government and social-sector clients

    A high-priority, professionally guided consulting project on which an interdisciplinary team of graduate students provides design, strategic, planning, and/or implementation advice and support on matters that combine management, legal, governance, policy, regulatory, and/or technological issues crucial to the mission of the client organization - typically, a state department of education, school district, charter school organization, school-support or advocacy group, or other non-profit serving children.
