Law, Justice, and Society (LJS)

Law, Justice, and Society

The Law, Justice, and Society Program engages students in an interdisciplinary exploration of the nature of law and justice, challenges students to think freely, critically, and humanely about the role of law at a variety of levels (local, national, regional, global), and equips students to critically examine law and justice across cultural, chronological, topical, and institutional settings.
