Law, Social Change and State of the Country Addressed

In the wake of the presidential elections, many individuals are giving comment on the U.S. political process and its effects on society. A Law and Equality course offered at Indiana University Northwest during the spring semester is addressing these issues as well as the US legal system in constructing class, gender and race inequalities.

 "There are so many things to talk about in terms of law, social change, and the state of the country," says Labor Studies professor M. Thandabantu Iverson, adding that the Bush-Gore election has raised awareness of the importance of the issues. 

Individuals interested in the Law and Equality course should contact Professor Iverson in the Labor Studies office at 219-981-4272 or at The Labor Studies program at IU Northwest offers certificate and degree programs. It is also the home of the Union Education Program and Swingshift College.
