Section Description

Have you ever thought about how a justice system is designed? Do you wonder how decisions are made around policies and their enforcement? In this global period of transition, you might be pondering how we decide when the rules aren?t working properly anymore and how we go about changing them. Explore all these questions and more in this brand-new course developed in collaboration between the Siebel Center for Design and Douglas R. Johnson, Esq, practicing attorney with 30+ years of experience. Using the tools and methodologies of human-centered design, multidisciplinary teams will take a critical look at the current US justice system, identify a specific challenge they?re passionate about, and work towards solving that challenge in a creative way. Email designcenter@illinois.edu for more information. This course will be delivered via Moodle.
