As a Law and Society Major, you’ll dive deeper into your studies through independent study, field work, and your Senior Thesis. Popular internships for our students have included the Mahwah Police Department, Bergen County Police Department, Bergen County Municipal Court, Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), county and city courts, law firms, and state senators. Recent internship highlights include the United Nations, White House, and the international law firm White & Case (Germany).
All students in law and society must write a substantial thesis as their capstone. The best theses are published in the Ramapo Journal of Law and Society (www.ramapo.edu/law-journal), one of the few undergraduate law and society journals in the country. The Journal is run by Ramapo students, most of whom are law and society majors.
Our students also have an opportunity to organize and participate in our signature event series, the World of Law and SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) Discussion Series. The program is open to the entire college community, and has featured speakers from, among others, the Bronx Defenders, Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office, Children’s Rights, Center for Reproductive Rights, Legal Aid, American Friends Service Committee, Outten & Golden.
