Interdisciplinary Curricula: Legal Studies


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors and Minors

In antiquity, Socrates held that the laws were his “true parent.” For then as now, laws help to constitute and regulate family, school, church, commercial, and governmental institutions. They therefore affect the lives of everyone throughout, although conversely human beings make the law. Legal foundations, developments, and effects are consequently of intrinsic interest and concern to many disciplines and their students. The Legal Studies curriculum is accordingly designed not so much for the pre-law student, as for any student whose liberal education seeks to understand the formative bases of human civilization and culture.
