PUBP 607 - Law and Public Policy

Fall Credits: 3 Byrne, Staff.

Law and Public Policy examines the role of the judiciary as a policy-making institution, including its interactions with legislative, regulatory, and private-sector entities. Students analyze several cases currently before the United States Supreme Court and, through the prism of those cases and other readings, explore the concepts of judicial review, separation of powers, and federalism, and also external influences on law-making bodies, including lobbying, public opinion, and the media. Sections will focus either on the U.S. Legal System or Comparative Legal Systems.
