Examining the law's role in broad aspects of social life

Legal Studies considers problems and perspectives that reach across most academic disciplines and practical fields taught at Brandeis.

This interdepartmental program presents law in the broad context of history, economics, politics, philosophy, literature and the sciences and traces law’s impact within the fields of health, business, environment and creative arts. The scope of legal concerns ranges from the local (states and communities), to the national and to the global (regions and international bodies).

Legal studies at Brandeis does not provide professional legal training; it gives undergraduates access to a venerable field of human expression, where rigorous learning combines with reflective practice.
