What functions does the law serve in our society? How does the law work? What do lawyers know? How does the law resolve and evolve? How shall we participate?
Freshman Seminar: ARSC 198-631 T: Law and Social Change (3 Cr)
Instructor: Bartlit, J
Schedule: TR 09:30 - 10:45 AM
Linked With: ENGL 102-631 Composition II: Analysis and Argument (3 Cr)
Schedule: TR 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM
We will examine our American legal system to gain understanding of its various functions and methods, that of lawyers, and the critical roles WE serve. Toward these ends, we will review our nation’s charters and their history, study selected controversies in context, and work with developing knowledge on current dilemmas. What is “thinking like a lawyer”? How do we employ the law to resolve private or public controversies? How does the law evolve? In the seminar, we’ll employ readings, writings, argument and analysis, observation of court, presentations, discussion, and deliberation, woven together with skills and knowledge developing in English 102, toward an informed appreciation of the law and citizenship.Freshman Seminar Instructor - Bartlit, J
