About Us

The Law and Society Minor is a multidisciplinary program that provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to understand the law as a social phenomenon. This unique minor is suited to those interested in law, governance, and social issues. The multifaceted nature of this program allows students to take relevant courses across a variety of disciplines to understand socio-legal scholarship under religious, historical, social, and political contexts. Disciplines include Anthropology, Classical Studies, Economics, Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice, History, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Religious Studies, and Sociology. Law and Society ChatsÔÇÖ (LASOC) mandate is to raise awareness of the Law and Society (LASO) minor program and expand studentsÔÇÖ knowledge of the interrelated relationship between the law and society. We intend to accomplish this by working closely with the Law and Society Department and Faculty to enhance socio-legal scholarship through educated and opinionated discussions, social justice-oriented events and informational sessions. Past events include our annual Social Justice Careers Night, the Law and Society Minor Information Session, and attendance at various lectures relevant to the clubÔÇÖs interests (e.g. Law and Society Lecture Series and Centre for Feminist Legal Studies Lecture Series). While the club will have an academic focus, we hope to bring together and inspire like-minded peers from a variety of disciplines to contemplate the role of the law in our everyday lives. In doing so, LASOC allows students to actively take part in an intellectual community geared towards the globally interconnected world we find ourselves in today.
