This class is an interdisciplinary problem solving class offered at the Law School through the Problem Solving Initiative (PSI). Today's information and communication technologies create opportunities for surveillance, tracking, and privacy infringements. Students will learn about privacy risks that a variety of exposure-sensitive populations face, including marginalized groups, immigrants, journalists, abuse survivors, and children. Multidisciplinary student teams will leverage insights from design thinking, law, information, public policy, and other disciplines to develop novel privacy solutions for such susceptible groups.

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 ( November 4-18, 2019. After the initial application period, students seeking to apply can contact [email protected].
