LPPS 7400 - Legal and Moral Dimensions of Policymaking

This seminar is designed to introduce MPP students to the basic structure of law and patterns of moral reasoning about public policy. Students will examine how the legal system operates in four fields (international, environmental, criminal, & immigration) and how legal advisers inform policy making. Case studies in each field will allow for the exploration of how the interaction of law, morality and policy changes from one context to the next.
