It will explore issues in culture affecting the well-being of children, including handgun violence, bullying, child abuse and neglect, the impact of media on children’s aggression, and risk factors for children becoming violent predators. Students will write a seminar paper examining how the law can better promote children’s well-being in one or more of these areas through legislative, judicial, regulatory, or litigation initiatives.Two hours.WilsonThere are no prerequisites for this seminar.Not offered in 2011-2012.
