Equality & Inequality
As discussions of economic and political inequalities become increasingly present in our political debates, issues of equality and inequality have become central to the polity. Courses in this concentration focus on these issues by examining the intersection of law and social policy as it pertains to underrepresented groups. You will examine debates about group identity, civil rights and liberties, discrimination and the meaning of justice in a democracy.
