PSPA 4010 - Contemporary Legal Debates♦


(5 cr.) Many of society’s most intractable problems are resolved through the legal system. In this course, students examine issues at the foundation of many legal debates, such as immigration, abortion, reproductive rights, intellectual property, and the separation of church and state. Students engage in contextual and application-based assignments that highlight the legal aspects of several social issues. They share perspectives through peer discussions on topical issues, such as legal views and decisions, right to privacy, race, the death penalty, and the responsibilities of corporations as members of society. Students practice their research, persuasive-writing, and analysis skills through a final project on a contemporary legal debate.
