Race, Law, and Society

Course Number: LAW 6936 Credits: 2

Students are introduced to the law as a color-blind or race neutral approach to regulating society. At the same time, law is normally taught without much focus on specific characteristics of the communities that will be impacted by it. Through a collaboration of eminent scholars from across diverse fields, both in law, as well as outside, the seminar material will explore the impact of law on racialized communities. This is a two-credit course. There will be an expectation that the students will write a paper or create a project based on a topic of interest that relates to the course material.
