Course Description

PPOL 241
Law and Public Policy

This course examines the role of law and legal institutions in policy-making. Using case studies of historical and contemporary issues, we will assess the strengths, weaknesses and relative effectiveness of different institutions--courts, legislatures, and administrative agencies--in making and enforcing public policy decisions. Students will also learn to read and conduct research in primary legal materials, including court decisions, legislative acts, and administrative regulations.
