Undergraduate students taking a Law course? Absolutely! For the second year, the James E. Rogers College of Law will offer a class for undergraduates: Sex, Race, Drugs, and Power in the Supreme Court, Law 389.
This course features 13 law professors, all leading scholars in their field. Each professor will focus on one landmark case each week, exploring the ways that rhetoric, argument, values, institutional concerns, and evidence are deployed in deciding fundamental social questions.
The course is structured to meet for weekly lectures with law professors in addition to a smaller 20-person discussion led by some of our top law students.
Sex, Race, and Power in the Supreme Court serves as an introduction to the institutional structure of the American legal system with a focus on the Supreme Court and its role in regulating people’s lives, activities, and futures.
