CTSJ 221 Inequity and the Law

This interdisciplinary course is designed for students considering the law as a potential career path and who are interested in developing an understanding of the relationship between inequity, the law and critical theory. Our materials will include federal and California statutes and case law, government-issued reports, and legal journal articles related to education; housing justice; police practices; consumer protection; immigrants' rights; and other topics. This course will teach students the methods of law and policy analysis. The two main questions that will guide our critical thinking are: what is the impact of the law on inequity and what is the impact of inequity on the law?
