Inter-Group Conflict and the Law Course

This seminar will examine inter-group conflict in both its local and global manifestations across race, ethnic, religious and class differences. Because the legal response to inter-group conflict is often limited to increased policing and militarization, the course will explore what the possible alternatives are for law's role in addressing inter-group conflict. Students will be required to write a Final Paper of approximately 15 pages analyzing an inter-group conflict of their own choice from a local or global context. Students seeking Upper Class Writing Requirement certification are required to submit a research paper of 25 pages.
