PHIL 2990 - Foundations of Law and Society

(CA-AS, SSC-AS)      
Fall, Spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Fall: J. Kohler-Hausmann, B. Lyon, S. Nichols, E. York Cornwell; Spring: Staff.

This course explores the meaning of Law and Society, which is an interdisciplinary study of the interactive nature of legal and social forces. A law and society perspective places law in its historical, social, and cultural context, studying the dynamic way in which law shapes social norms, policy, and institutions, and conversely, the way that social forces shape the law. This Foundations of Law and Society course is structured as a series of four modules, each taught by a faculty member from a different discipline. The modules will introduce students to a range of disciplinary methods and content related to the study of the interaction of law with social, political, and economic institutions and relationships.
