Why choose law and society?
Students in the Law and Society major offered by the Western New England University grapple with a number of important and pressing concerns, including the nature and functions of law in American society; the contested meanings of justice, freedom, equality, and rights; and the role and influence of courts, attorneys, and the police in the United States and around the world. Students interrogate a wide variety of controversial legal, political, and social issues, from the death penalty, affirmative action, and immigration policy, to free speech, police conduct, and Internet privacy.
The Law and Society program is excellent preparation for a variety of opportunities, including law and graduate school, and careers in law, government, education, international affairs, and business.
