Course Description

LAW 165 - Modes of Legal Inquiry

"Modes of Legal Inquiry" is a collection of electives:  one-credit courses, offered on a pass/unsatisfactory/no credit basis. The Modes of Legal Inquiry will be taught in small, seminar-style classes of 20 or fewer students.  There are no pre-requisites for these courses; faculty members have designed them expressly to appeal and engage our first-year class. The topics may vary from year to year, but these courses embody a variety of analytical frameworks (for instance, empirical legal studies, interdisciplinary research, and public policy or philosophical perspectives).  Each of the courses requires active participation in discussing the reading and completing short writing assignments.
