Legal Studies: Featured Courses on Race, Diversity & Social Justice

At the core of Legal Studies is understanding the ways that law can be used to create and reinforce inequalities while also being a powerful force to ameliorate them.  From the introductory course to our upper division electives, our faculty teach a wide variety of courses focusing on race, ethnicity, racism, inequality, social justice, and related issues.  We also offer a Letter of Specialization in “Law and Social Justice.”  We encourage you to consider incorporating courses on these important topics as you make your way through the Legal Studies major!
