Law and Society

As a Law and Society student, you can expect to take a range of courses that move beyond the study of formal law to examine law in its broader social, economic, and political contexts. You will learn, for instance, the differences between what the law says and the what the law does, including the diversity of ways that individuals and communities both experience and respond to law and regulation in society.

You will also learn that attending university entails so much more than simply going to lectures and completing course requirements. Your Law and Society degree will challenge you personally and professionally to become critical thinkers, ethical researchers, professional colleagues, and engaged citizens in both your local surroundings and an increasingly global world. The critical thinking, research, and communication skills that you develop in your undergraduate degree are in high demand by employers both within and beyond the legal field.
