Law, Rights, and Justice

Major in Law, Rights, and Justice

The Law, Rights, and Justice major and minor examine the relationship between law, rights, and competing concepts of justice. You will study across the disciplines like political science, philosophy, history, English, business, and economics to explore human rights, rule of law, politics, and public policy. It’s an opportunity to engage with questions about the sources, functions, and impact of law and the relationships between law and freedom, virtue, democracy, and equality.
