Law and Social Sciences Seminar (3 cr)
LAW 854
Legal study is increasingly interdisciplinary, making use of various other fields to challenge, inform, and assist legal theory and doctrine. This seminar will cover a number of social sciences—e.g., psychology, economics, sociology, political science, anthropology—to examine the connections between law and other disciplines. Topics to which these social science approaches will be applied may include capital punishment, juries, race, gender, paternalism, media violence, obscenity, expert witnesses, judicial decision-making, and others based on students' interest. A thorough research paper designed to meet the College of Law writing criteria will be required.
