The Law, Justice and Society minor provides an interdisciplinary perspective on law. We study the complex ways in which law works in society and the integral relationship of law with justice. The law is not a tool or technique to be mastered and manipulated. Law emerges out of struggles over social, political and cultural values; law affects different communities differently; and law shapes society and is shaped by it. Students in the Law, Justice and Society program will become familiarized with law in different societies, but even more, they will learn a holistic way of thinking about the interactions of law, justice and society that will serve them well whether they go into law or another field.
