Law & Social Change Program of Study


Because law is deeply implicated in our economic, political, and social worlds, pursuit of social change invariably involves an engagement with law. Students who seek to understand how law can be harnessed for social change, or who wish to pursue careers as social change agents, are encouraged to follow the Law and Social Change Program of Study.

At the heart of the Program of Study is an effort to build a community of students and faculty committed to understanding and using law as a means of achieving social change. The Program holds regular events with faculty and students who can answer questions about course selection, summer plans, and career options. The Program also sponsors programming on substantive social change topics and social events to give students and professors affiliated with the Program the chance to get to know one another in more informal settings.
