Why law?

This first module will set the basis for understanding contemporary features of law, power, and politics. We will approach the subject of law by looking at its purpose (unit 1), role (2), and application (unit 3) in a society.

Each unit will have a brief theoretical section, a resuming infographic or video, and practical activities to expand or test comprehension.
A quick final quiz will close the module.
