You’ll find yourself at the interdisciplinary crossroads between Law and History as you examine how law, in its many forms, has contributed to shaping society, be it through domestic and international court systems or the methods employed by citizens to resist unjust laws. The History, Law, and Society program is offered by The American University of Paris . 


At the History, Law, and Society program offered by The American University of Paris , you will study the evolution of laws and cases revolving around such crucial issues as the death penalty, criminal justice, hate speech, transgender rights, and immigration. You may enroll in this major as an informal pre-law major or to complement other areas of study. 

Learning environment

In keeping with our University’s commitment to a liberal arts education, we support the ideal of law as a “liberal profession”, wherein free thinking, academic mastery, and intellectual rigor are encouraged through a multitude of disciplines.

 In small seminars you will be asked to contemplate historical and contemporary cases, engage in mock trials, and share what you learn and discover with students and professors who hail from around the world. You will also be exposed to readings that relate to the many relevant disciplines that make up the major, including History, Literature, and Sociology.
