LAW 101LEC Introduction to the American Legal System

Lecture

This required course for Law majors and minors provides an introduction to the study of law in America. We will begin by asking what "law" is, where it comes from, and what preconceptions we have about what it should do. We will then turn to the origins and structure of the American legal system, how our legal decisions are made and preserved, and what effect those decisions have had, and will have, on our institutions and our culture.
