Law and Public Policy

Law and Public Policy Logo

Do you want to know how the law works and how you can use it to solve difficult problems? Check out the new major and minor in Law and Public Policy. It’s ideal if you’re considering a career that tackles issues such as tax and health care policy, social justice, cyber security or intellectual property rights.

You’ll explore how legal institutions and their leaders shape public policy, and you’ll learn how to use the law to accomplish your goals, whether you work for a government agency, a nonprofit or a business.

The classes are taught by top-notch faculty from across the Indiana University campus. This is the only opportunity you’ll have as an undergraduate to learn from the stellar faculty at IU’s Maurer School of Law.
