Law and Society I: Are There Windows In Law Schools?
0.5 Credit

Can we really speak of law as an independent social phenomenon, or must we ‘put windows in law schools’ in order to understand why the law is the way it is? This course will provide an introduction to understanding law as an interactive part of society, and not simply as a self-enforcing system of rules. The course will focus on considering some of those social forces that influence, and are influenced by, law.
