Law schools across the country are beginning to offer courses examining problem-solving principles and practices. The Conference of Chief Justices and the Conference of State Court Administrators, among others, have urged law schools to include the principles and methods of problem-solving courts in their curricula. This page offers a clearinghouse of information for professors from law schools and other disciplines (including graduate programs in social work, public policy criminology and other fields) who are interested in learning more about how to incorporate problem-solving courts into their classes.
