Class Description:
Occupational Licensing - Theory and Evidence to Policy:

The class will focus on connecting the dots between the regulation of licensed occupations and their implications for public policy and practice at the state level. The class will work with key analysts at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), National Governors Association (NGA), and the Council of State Governments (CSG). Students will have the opportunity to take a deep dive in areas that have traditionally received less attention in the study of occupational licensure. Student products will be used to inform the continued policy research by NCSL, NGA, and CSG on occupational licensing best practices across the states. Students will obtain tangible connections between research, evidence, and regulatory policy and how seemingly small policy decisions can have major labor market impacts across sectors and populations.
