Department of Law and Politics
The Department of Law and Politics is divided into the Law Program and the Politics Program, each of which has different admission processes, classes, and degrees. Each program can be viewed as equivalent to similarly named departments at other universities. What they have in common is an excellent staff and an outstanding learning environment. There are graduate student research labs in each program, and all students are assigned a study desk of their own. In addition to small seminar sizes (the average is 2–4 students per instructor), general seminars in a research society format are conducted once a month. Students thus prepared are given opportunities to continue on to a doctoral program and to have their work published in the Law Association Journal. Both programs have produced outstanding world-class researchers and prominent professionals and public officials. For more information about either program, see the department’s pamphlet or website.
