This course explores important issues through a number of specific examples of "law in action" involving legal disputes between individuals, institutions and branches of government.
Law in Action introduces non-law students to the reality of law in modern society and addresses issues such as:
- What is law for and how is it made?
- Who are the key players in the legal system?
- What is the role of the public in the justice system?
- How can law address deeply divisive and complex issues in society?
This course approaches the study of law from an interdisciplinary perspective, covering law, political science, psychology and empirical research methods.
