Overall Simulation Synopsis
The Share-Inn Economy simulation positions students in the role of the General Counsel (GC) to a start-up tech company as they grapple with explaining the current legal landscape and options to advocate for policy change to allow the company to expand into the food service industry. Students learn about the advising, business strategy and policy skills of the legal profession. Over the course of multiple sessions students read three prompts and relevant background information that presents the progression of turning an idea into actual legislation by participating in writing a strategy memo as to company opportunities within the current law, drafting legislation, and presenting legislative testimony. Throughout the simulation students work together in groups.
Share-Inn Economy (B)
In Share-Inn Economy (B) it is several months later, and the GC has been in dialogue with Ames legislators and legislative staffers for the Health Committee. Students again play the role of Share-Inn’s GC. A legislative staffer has asked the Share-Inn GC to draft a bill to update the Ames cottage food law so home cooks working with Share-Inn can operate legally. Share-Inn Economy (B) provides examples of draft bills and legislative support letters that students can use as models while they develop their own.
