The OSU curriculum includes a variety of law-related courses, but a broad, introductory course is not one of them. This course provides foundational knowledge related to law that is relevant and useful on its own but also supports study of more specialized or advanced topics related to law.

Description:
This course provides students with an overview of American law. It is motivated by the idea that the institution of law is an integral part of our society. Laws and regulations not only help create and structure our political and economic systems but affect virtually every aspect of our daily lives in some way. A foundational understanding of the substance and process of law can be an asset for well-rounded professionals, support effective and engaged civic participation, and facilitate further study of a wide variety of subjects.
