Call for Contributors/ Chapter Authors: Law and Public Policy Textbook
The field of public policy has exploded in recent years as our regulatory environment becomes more complex and challenging for individuals and businesses to navigate. Law schools, business schools, and schools in related disciplines are developing seminars on the policy environment that discuss issues such as economic policy, social policy, and foreign policy. However, in many cases, the linkages between government policies and the laws and precedent that interpret (or in some cases create) them are not made clear. But as we know, laws and policies do not exist in a vacuum—they must be understood in their contextual environment. Currently, no single text offers a complete picture of the law and policy environment, depriving students across many disciplines of the deeper understanding necessary to operate in today’s business and legal environment. That is the impetus for this new book.
If you would like to contribute to the drafting of this new textbook either by submitting a chapter or insights for an existing chapter, please get in touch with me promptly. The fields in which authors might contribute include (but are not limited to):
If any of these topics are within your area of expertise and you are interested in contributing, or if you have questions about how you might contribute, please contact me at Kevin.Fandl@Temple.edu. Thank you.
