Fall 2017 | 1-Credit Themes in Action Course: Making & Breaking Law

CAS 2300 Themes in Action: Making and Breaking the Law introduces students to law in relation to society, culture, politics, and power. Seats are still availablemabtlSQUARE. Ohio University students—freshmen to seniors and any major—are encouraged to apply.

This is a credit/non-credit course with no classroom attendance required. There are no pre-requisites.

The course provides a strong foundation for the Making and Breaking the Law theme. It is ideal for students who are considering law school or graduate school, and who wish to pursue careers in law and related fields. It also prepares students to apply to the selective Certificate Program in Law, Justice & Culture.

In the course, students engage in self-directed learning by attending campus events and extracurricular activities across the semester. The events include public lectures, film screenings, professional development workshops, career panels, mock trials, and other academic activities.

“Through the course, we hope to encourage students to participate in a campus conversation about the challenges of law and justice in the 21st century,” says course instructor and CLJC Director Dr. Haley Duschinski. “By becoming part of the CLJC community, students will learn to think critically about law’s power and its role in our everyday lives.”

Students attend seven events throughout the semester and submit critical reflection papers through the Blackboard site. They are also required to read one assigned book and to have at least one advising meeting with CLJC Pre-Law Specialist Larry Hayman in Bentley Hall 001.

The course can be found under the CAS prefix on the Course Offerings website.
