Class description

This course is the first in a four course series for second and third year law students. The course series has multiple goals so that students can serve as change agents in our law school and the wider community: 1) to develop student counseling skills; 2) to increase multicultural sensitivity; and 3) to deploy peer counseling.

Students are introduced to the culture of counseling as part of our profession. We will come to further understand individuals in the context of social systems. Students will learn about effects of power and privilege in the United States and the implications of power and privilege for counseling relationships. In the applied portion of the class, students will increase their abilities to engage in respectful practice of counseling people, from all backgrounds.
