IDS:105Law Goes to the Movies3

This interdisciplinary course explores important themes in the study of law by comparing scholarly/quantitative work, against representations of these themes in cinema. The course explores legal themes through multiple perspectives, including comparison of scholarly research, communication methods, and psychology. These approaches will provide opportunities for students to gain insight into how films are a cultural vehicle for representation or misrepresentation of lawyers and the legal process. Prerequisite: Reading Proficiency.
