This class is an interdisciplinary problem solving class offered at the Law School through the Problem Solving Initiative (PSI).

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) policies have taken center stage in the investment world, but requirements of investor ESG policies vary widely, and they may be challenging for investee companies to implement. In this course, multi-disciplinary student teams will work with faculty and subject matter experts to learn about ESG policies, how to assess their impact, and if there are ways to harmonize such policies. Students will leverage problem-solving skills and insights from fields including law, business, and policy to develop innovative solutions to a challenge in this area.

This class is open to all University of Michigan graduate and professional students. Please note: Non-Law students are responsible for checking with their own schools, colleges, or units to learn if a PSI class will count toward graduation or other departmental requirements.

Non-law graduate/professional students may apply for the course using the PSI application system (https://problemsolving.law.umich.edu/) March 14-28, 2022. After the initial application period, students seeking to apply can contact problemsolving@umich.edu.
