Maitreyi Misra, founding member of Project 39A, said: “During our work, we realized the barriers that a lack of interdisciplinary learning created for students and practitioners of law. So the courses were designed with the goal of getting the different fields talking to each other, rather than talking to each other in the courtroom. We have forensic pathologists and psychiatrists who talk to lawyers and the law, which enhances the learning experience, but also has real implications in terms of application to legal practice.
