About The Course
This major examines the impact that law and social policy has on our lives, both nationally and globally. How do law and society relate to, and change, each other? How does law actually work in the real world? Is the law the same thing as justice? You will explore a variety of fascinating issues while developing skills in understanding, applying and critiquing socio-legal concepts and issues. With its focus on the social dimensions of law, this major perfectly complements a wide range of studies, including politics, communications, sociology, culture, economics or anthropology.
