Cluster Description: This cluster asks students to examine law from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students will learn diverse approaches to reading texts related to the law.  The courses are united by the desire to better understand the meaning of law.  What the law intends to do and what it actually does may be very different.

The full list of Law Cluster courses is under the "Course List" heading on the top left menu on this page.
