Welcome - Orientation to Law LAWS 1002   Orientation to Law
CREDIT HOURS: 1
The objective of the course is to orient students to the study of law by introducing them to four fundamental perspectives in the law: the comparative, the historical, the philosophical and the professional. Within each perspective several Faculty members will lecture, both to convey information deemed essential and to give a sense of the variety and contingency within each perspective. Mandatory readings will be presented in advance by each faculty speaker.
NOTES: Assessment Method: Pass/fail oral exam conducted by a faculty member. All students must attend the oral OTL exams as scheduled. If the oral exam is unsatisfactory the student will be re-examined by a three-person panel. Any student who, without permission from the Studies Committee, does not attend the initial oral exam will not have recourse to the three person panel and will fail the course.
