LAW 3605 - Critical Legal Theory and Critical Lawyering/Advocacy


This course seeks to introduce students to social justice critiques of U.S. Law and the legal system, and to consider current and innovative reform and advocacy projects to address these issues.  For the first part of the course, the class will explore a variety of critical social justice perspectives, including Feminist Legal Theory, Critical Race Theory, Queer Theory, and ClassCrit Theory.  In the remaining part of the class, the class will consider strategies for reforming certain aspects of U.S. law and legal systems in the interest of a more inclusive justice.  Along with relevant readings, in this part of the course, guests may be invited to engage the class on innovative scholarship or perhaps “out of the box” work being done to effectuate such reform.      

Credits: Two or three credits at the teacher’s discretion and based on course content coverage.
