New Course for Graduate Students: Human Rights Challenge @ UCLA School of Law

This January (Winter 2020), the THNK School of Creative Leadership in partnership with the Promise Institute for Human Rights will be facilitating an innovation bootcamp out of UCLA School of Law. This is a 5-day course (43 hours total, including work outside the classroom) which takes place from January 13-17, 2020 on campus and is open to all UCLA graduate students, and will take on the human rights challenge of policing, technology/AI, and surveillance in Los Angeles. In this course, students will apply design thinking, systems thinking and network building techniques to generate innovative solutions to a Human Rights Challenge. Working in interdisciplinary teams, students will learn how to use concepts such as power-mapping, creative questions, user journeys and early prototyping in concert with their professional skills to catalyze new approaches. Students will present their team’s solution to an invited audience at the end of the course.

LAW 951 –Human Rights Challenge is a 1 unit Law (semester) course which is equal to 1.5 quarter unit course. Public Policy students are able to take this course as an elective and will receive 1.5 units should they complete the course with a satisfactory grade.
