SOC 374: Law and Society (SLN 20748)

Though we’ve offered SOC 374 somewhat regularly for several years, this year it boasts a new instructor, Ann Frost. Ann was recently hired as a full-time joint lecturer in SOC and LSJ. Holding both a JD and PhD (in PoliSci), she brings a new perspective to the study of legal sociology that may be of special interest to Economics majors shopping for non-major electives.

A blurb from the instructor:

Law and society interact in ways that impact us even when we don’t realize it. This class will delve into these interactions and will discover how the law is the product of social, economic, political, and psychological forces. We will discuss the origin of law, its development, and the way it functions in society. This will be explored through various aspects of the law including dispute resolution, psychological and political influences on judicial decision making, criminal law, law and social control, international human rights, and law and racial inequality.
