JLST 101 Fall 2014 Introduction to Justice and Law

This course will examine all aspects of America's legal system, including its historical and constitutional underpinnings; the processes of resolving disputes, e.g., trials, plea-bargaining, and civil settlement; and the diverse roles of participants in the system, e.g., judges, jurors, legislators, and law schools. The course will emphasize the deeply interdisciplinary nature of law, probing the law's intersections with politics, history, economics, psychology, philosophy, sociology, science, and religion.
