[ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Key Elective : Students interested in a career in public policy should understand how to use and respond to policy studies. These studies are often cited as a basis for law and regulatory reform, and they have played a significant role in both the legislative arena and in key court decisions. Policy studies analyze the initial policy decisions implemented in legal rules and also the effectiveness of their continued implementation. Students should take one or more courses focusing on policy analysis.
