Seminar participants look at laws and legal systems as reflected through the eyes of novelists, playwrights or non-fiction writers. The goal of the seminar is to enhance students’ appreciation of law’s impact on society and its response to societal problems. Papers written for this course can be used to satisfy the Advanced Writing Requirement. This information has been collected for the Post-Discipline Online Syllabus Database.
