Interdisciplinary Studies in Law

An open, dynamic and more connected world has significant impact on law, citizenship and participation, challenging not only our usual understanding of these concepts but also the conventional compartmentalization of legal knowledge.  We need global, interdisciplinary yet context-sensitive perspectives to make sense of the changes and reflect on ourselves and our relationships with others.

The Interdisciplinary Studies in Law Subject Group offers courses, workshops and other academic activities in response to the educational and training needs emerged in the midst of such dynamism in the local and regional contexts, with a view to cultivating a legal culture that is conscious of principles, values and humanity.
