All Areas of Interest

Harvard Law School students have the opportunity to learn about law and political economy: the study of how law structures power in market societies, and how economy and polity structure each other. Courses cover diverse areas, from property, criminal law, and constitutional law and history to racial capitalism, labor, and the legal architecture of money. Some courses explore specific strategic interventions like the Green New Deal, universal basic income, or ending mass incarceration.
