Welcome to  Law, Justice and Society

The LAW, JUSTICE & SOCIETY program provides an interdisciplinary learning experience for students who are interested in the study of law and justice as subjects of historical, philosophical, political, or socio-anthropological inquiry, or as an avenue for work in criminal justice, public policy, legal research, or human rights advocacy.
Drawing on a wide range of relevant courses from several different disciplines, the program offers students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the role of law in relation to other social institutions. It also facilitates the understanding of the historical development, political uses, and place in philosophical traditions of concepts and practices of law and justice. The program will also help students critically evaluate, apply, and engage in research and analysis focused on law and justice.
