Anne-Marie Hakstian, Coordinator

This course of study will introduce students to the U.S. legal system as well as the complex relationship between law and society. Students will become familiar with the development of cultural practices, social organizations, and political forces that affect law and justice. Emphasis is placed on the ways in which issues of justice, morality, authority, order, legitimacy, individualism, and community create tensions within ordered social life. The Legal Studies minor is open to all students. Up to six (6) credits from a student’s major may be used to satisfy the Legal Studies minor.
