This class is designed for upper-level students interested in exploring the barriers that low-income and vulnerable individuals often face when interacting with the civil side of the justice system, as well as how effective advocacy can help overcome these obstacles. It is also designed for students planning to sit for the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE). Understanding complex access to justice issues involves a range of different doctrinal topics (that are also bar-tested)--many of which students will have already taken but can now review and master further--including Property, Civil Procedure, and Family Law. This class provides students with significant opportunities to practice analyzing these issues by writing responses to bar exam style essays, as well as engaging in other forms of problem-solving and analysis. Students thinking about taking the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) are especially encouraged to take this class, at it will offer in-depth immersion into the strategies and tactics necessary for succeeding on all MEE (Multi-State Essay Exam) essays.
