Laws are fundamental to any successful society. Law and Society bachelor degree at Memorial University of Newfoundland  is the study of the place of these laws in social, political, economic and cultural life.


Key facts

Throughout history, as communities and countries have struggled to define and serve justice, social, cultural, and legal institutions have been essential.

It introduces you to different facets of law and the role of law in society through the ages.
