Program Office/Bureau du programme : J. Baker, C230 York Hall

The Certificate in Law and Social Thought is offered by the Philosophy Department.

This program places the study of law in the context of a liberal arts education; that is, the law will be studied within both a humanities and a social science context. Some course offerings emphasize the moral and philosophical dimensions that inform legal life and link the study of law with social and political thought. Others focus on legal institutions: how they yield regulation and socially sanctioned force, how they interact with society.

Students may earn a Certificate in Law and Social Thought concurrent with fulfillment of the requirements for a bachelor’s degree at York University. To register for the certificate students must submit an application to the Office of Academic Services.
