Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Transactional ] as a Key Elective : One of the best features of Stanford's academic calendar is the flexibility it provides to take a great many electives. This enables you to emphasize breadth or depth in a particular area, or a mix of both, and to achieve a truly interdisciplinary education. But it also means you can include some courses just because they seem fun or interesting, even if far afield from your professional development.

General course Description:

Practicing law is very much a creative enterprise. Effective advocates and counselors provide innovative and thoughtful solutions to complex problems. But there often isn't enough attention devoted in law school either to thinking creatively or to reflecting in a creative way on the issues students confront inside and outside the classroom. This course response to this gap by building a bridge between law and the arts, with the goal of helping students hone their ability to think creatively and use disciplined imagination. Law & Creativity meets twice a week and has dual components designed to inform one another. The first session is structured as a seminar in which students gather to examine and discuss creative treatments of legal and professional issues in a variety of media (including film, fiction, and nonfiction). The second session follows the creative-writing workshop model in which students submit their own fiction and creative nonfiction pieces for group discussion. Through the workshop process, students develop the skills necessary to constructively critique and workshop one another's work, and learn a variety of techniques for improving their own creative writing.

Course Style: A Substantive/ Perspective course looks at law from an external or non-traditional standpoint.

Course Frequency: Offered once a year
