Law (Pre)

Law provides the framework within which a society can succeed. It creates order that governs the actions of individuals and organizations, defines the rights of people, and helps settle disputes between parties. The absence of a legal system allows terrible injustices to be placed upon vulnerable members of society.

Professionals in the legal field have a responsibility to keep the law relevant to the needs of a changing society. As a student studying law you will be challenged to think about and respond to questions which are essential to our future.
