LWS 330 Law in Everyday Life

3 hours

This course builds on ideas introduced in LWS 200 about law in everyday life. It examines how daily practices enact legal norms, whether or not those norms are formally written down. Students will explore how these practices help produce social and physical boundaries, and they will write a series of papers based on their own observations of everyday settings shaped by law. By doing so, students will study how formal and informal norms interrelate, deepening their understanding of socio-legal theory. Depending on the instructor, the course may have a different theme.
