POLT 274 - Law and Public Policy

FC SSCI WADV
4 credits
This course introduces students to four key dimensions of lawmaking: constitutional law, administrative law, statutory law, and direct ballot. While courts play a central role in all theses dimensions of lawmaking, the course will also emphasize the role of Congress, administrative agencies, and interest groups in policy formation in such areas as civil rights, health care, the environment, and voting rights. Students will become familiar with analyzing legal materials and understanding how different dimensions of law interact and contribute to policy outcomes we observe.
Prerequisites & Notes: Intro to American Politics or an intermediate course in American politics.
