Course Descriptions


    CJ 341 - JYS: Innocence and Guilt

    Through a variety of reading and writing assignments, students explore the historical use of law as a form of social control, and tensions that repeatedly arise in societies governed by the rule of law, including when the law conflicts with notions of charity and justice. For their final project, students research and write about a contemporary conflict between the rights of the individual and the rights of society. Students have the option of writing their paper in a dialogue/play format, or a more traditional essay format.
