Program Description:
 UWW Faculty-led: Ireland/UK The Common Law of Crime and Punishment

The Program:
The purpose of this class is to provide students with an opportunity to explore the evolution and development of law and government in a cross-cultural context. Specifically, we will examine legal and governmental institutions that regulate crime and punishment policy and resolve disputes domestically and regionally. A portion of the class will be conducted in the United States with the remaining portions taught in Dublin, Edinburgh, and London.
Over the course of the semester, students will:
  • Compare theories of law, crime, and punishment across different political and cultural norms and apply this knowledge to a set of global and national-level legal issues, contexts, and processes
  • Compare the evolution of institutions in the United States to those in London, Edinburgh, and Dublin by exploring the values, beliefs, and perspectives underlying and informing the institutions in these countries
  • Develop critical-thinking skills, problem-solving strategies, and the capacity to cope effectively with ambiguous or unfamiliar situations
  • Gain experience and insights related to careers in law and government
