The BA in Law and Justice Studies is an interdisciplinary program that critically engages law’s political, historical, economic, and global dimensions, considering the theoretical frameworks and institutional forces at play. 

The curriculum approaches the study of law from an applied perspective to address the role of law in social policy and practice. Students choose from a range of legal studies courses taught by practicing lawyers, alongside relevant courses from across fields of inquiry. 

Coursework explores topical areas in law and the ways in which law mediates questions of authority and power, tensions between individual liberty social responsibility, and interpretations of justice, fairness, and equality. The program is designed to build substantive knowledge in various areas of interest, while developing skills and analysis, argumentation, research and writing.
