Policy Writing: Memos and Briefing Papers with Luciana Herman

Policy Writing: Memos and White Papers 1
LUCIANA HERMAN Lecturer in Law and Director, Stanford Law and Policy Lab

Learn how to organize research and data for compelling policy memos and reports that illustrate underlying findings and principles. This workshop will highlight examples from past Policy Lab projects with attention to the differences between legal advocacy and policy analysis. You will learn general principles grounded in Robert K. Yin’s foundational works on writing policy case studies, including how to focus on process over outcome, building a strong contextual frame for the central issues, and extrapolating underlying principles for next steps in policy research.

This workshop is part of the Elements of Policy Analysis (LAW 7846).  However, all are welcome!
