LAWS 251 - CONTEMPORARY ISSUES AND THE LAW
This writing-intensive course engages in an exploration of contemporary and controversial issues of the law through the use of social science studies, humanities literature and news media. This course provides students with a scientific and cultural understanding of the social forces which shape law and society over time. Students will apply social science and humanities theories and methods to the study of law and legal development. Subjects may include topics such as the death penalty, abortion, civil liberties, civil rights, war and financial crises. Students will learn how to express persuasively their opinions on an approved thesis statement, using proper citation techniques, culminating in a 10-15 page paper with a clear thesis statement, 3-5 supporting propositions that include social science and humanities concepts, and a cogent and persuasive conclusion based on the evidence presented.
