Proposal

Proposal ID: 102075
Type: New Course
Submission Date: December 20, 2017 1:57pm
Approval Date: January 10, 2018 10:31am
Effective Term: Spring 2018
Justification:
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.
