About the M.A. in Law, Justice & Culture

“Law and society is a vibrant interdisciplinary field,” says M.A. Program Director Dr. Haley Duschinski, Associate Professor of Anthropology.

“As a law and society degree, the new M.A. program draws on the analytic, interpretive, and imaginative tools of the liberal arts to shed light on the moral and political elements on law, and its meaning and significance in our everyday lives.”

“This is important training for anyone who deals with law academically or professionally – including people who are in careers that deal with law, as well as those who are considering law school or Ph.D. programs.”
