The College of Law offers three unique opportunities for undergraduate students at The University of Tulsa:  The undergraduate Law, Policy and Society Minor ; the Arts and Sciences 3.5 + 2.5 Accelerated Law Program ; and the Business and Law, B.S.B.A./J.D. (The B.S.B.A./J.D. 3 + 3 Accelerated Business and Law Program for Exceptional Students)  .

Law, Policy and Society Minor

The undergraduate Law, Policy and Society Minor  at The University of Tulsa College of Law has the general aim of making the law a centerpiece for interdisciplinary inquiry into the diverse ways in which cultures-notably, but not exclusively, American society-have sought to achieve order and justice through appeals to recognized authority. The subject of law as a field worthy of study is widely acknowledged at The University of Tulsa but until now has been accessible mainly to J.D. and LL.M. students who pursue a professional degree in the College of Law or to undergraduates who take courses that include legal subject matter but typically are ancillary to a chosen concentration in the humanities or business. The law is much more than either of these applications. Instead, it provides a way to think through a different intellectual lens about the evolution of society and the problems that threaten fairness, justice, and inclusiveness in society. Social history; conceptions of social conformity; juridical expectations regarding rights, obligations, and interpersonal relations; evolving ideas of justice and punishment from cross-cultural perspectives and from perspectives of history are all revealed through study of the law.

The Law, Policy and Society Minor  enables students to explore law as a diverse human effort to achieve collective order without sacrificing individuality or the freedoms of discrete and insular minorities. The use of law as an instrument of policy for effecting change and improvement in human societies is examined in historical and present-day contexts, and in descriptive and normative modes of inquiry. Areas that students may pursue through coursework in the minor include, for example, morality, responsibility, theories of punishment, the American legal system, international law, legal and political philosophy, literature, sports, the death penalty, sex crimes, climate and the environment, copyrights and intellectual property, and the internet as a space both for self-expression and for piracy and other controversial activities.

Arts and Sciences 3.5 / 2.5 Accelerated Law Program
