The Law and Society Minor is an interdisciplinary and experiential approach to the study of law. This 18-credit, upper-level learning opportunity is designed to help students understand law in order to critically analyze it and use it as an instrument of change. Students will be introduced to law and society scholarship through courses taught by University of Maryland’s diverse faculty as well as law faculty from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. Coursework will challenge students’ assumptions about law and its function in society, encouraging them to think creatively and critically in coursework, internships, research and other field work.
