Appendix C: Policy and Perspectives Requirement

Each student is required to take at least one course from selections designated by the Law Faculty or the Curriculum Committee which are grounded in jurisprudential, historical, and public policy concepts. Courses are so designated based on subject matter which requires the student to consider factors which govern the development of legal doctrine, rather than simply the application of doctrine in the solution of problems or regulation of the activities of a community governed by principles of law.  Conflict of Laws; Introduction to International Law (if taken with another International Law course); Jurisprudence; Law and Economics Seminar; Law and Literature; Law and Religion; Legal History; Public International Law; Race and the Criminal Justice System Seminar; and Tax Policy have been designated as fulfilling this requirement. Other courses satisfying this requirement may be designated each semester by the Curriculum Committee.
