The Law and Society Program offers courses and events that emphasize the complexity and interrelationship of legal, social, and ethical issues in their historical context. The interdisciplinary minor offers students the opportunity to examine the role of the legal system in society and to study specific legal issues from the perspectives of the social sciences and the humanities.
Students benefit from the program by learning how to analyze and understand the legal implications and ramifications of policy and decision making. The minor enriches student preparation for professional and postgraduate education in the law field.
