The senior seminar this semester synthesizes and applies critical sociolegal and broader sociological and historical approaches to the study of law and its relationship to inequality in the United States. The focus is on disparities across class, race, and gender in history. Augmented by occasional lectures by the professor, the seminar context requires students to take primarily responsibility for conducting the class. The goal of the course is to describe and theorize inequalities in the United States and explore the role of law in creating, sustaining, and rectifying the various inequalities that have marked United States history. Measuring achievement of this goal is determined by two objectives: (1) demonstrate competence in subject matter, critical thinking, and writing skills by producing an original paper on an area of inequality; (2) student presentations and discussions of readings.
