Law, Society and Justice

New concentration pending approval by the Board of Governors

The Law, Society and Justice concentration focuses on areas of Social Science that study the social, historical, economic and political foundations of our modern world. How are societies organized? How are economic, political, and legal systems constructed and interconnected? How should we manage scarce resources? What is the difference between justice and law? These are some of the questions you will examine from a multidisciplinary perspective.

WHO SHOULD TAKE IT?

If you want to better understand social inequities and be a champion for social change, if you are interested in the legal, political and economic systems that govern our country, then the Law, Society and Justice concentration would be a perfect fit for you.

WHERE DOES IT LEAD?

The Law, Society and Justice profile is a great stepping stone for a wide variety of university programs, including studies in Law, Politics, Economics, International Development, and the Environment.
