William J. Leahy
Monday, November 3, 2014
The Heller School
Glynn Amphitheater (G4)
Brandeis in The Hague
An intensive academic experience open to students in all fields of study, the program covers a wide range of global concerns, combining classroom study and immersion in the international law networks associated with this famous “International City of Peace and Justice.”
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.
