Justice, Democracy, and Law (may be more than 32 credits)

This track serves students with interest in questions of justice, equality, inclusion, citizenship and basic rights as well as the role of the state in affecting these fundamental principles. It will best serve students with aspirations to attend theoretically oriented law schools like Yale, Stanford, Berkeley, NYU, or Duke; students aspiring to legal careers with an activist or political orientation; or students who are interested in the legal aspects of political theory or the political theory questions raised by public law and who hope to do crossover work at the doctoral level.
