The Law and Public Service Pathway provides the knowledge and understanding for scholars to actively influence decisions that have an impact on social justice.  Scholars have an opportunity to learn, understand, and participate in the creation and enforcement of civil and criminal laws.  Scholars will acquire a fundamental understanding of the law, and then develop the skills necessary to advocate and influence those in power.
