Law and Society

Ripon College offers a minor in law and society. It provides a network of courses designed to focus the student’s attention on the role of law and legal structure in a human community. Law is a primary means of ordering conduct and resolving social conflicts. Students understand the function, nature and limits of law. The minor is not intended as a pre-professional curriculum for the student interested in a career in law. Rather, it is designed for a wider audience interested in the entire question of the role of law and legal structures in a human community.
