Government, Public Policy, and Law

This CLAS Career Network encompasses political and legal professions. Local, state, and federal governments create, interpret, and enforce laws. Attorneys, judges, and mediators ensure that proper representation, due process, and constitutional adherence are granted during any legal dispute. From campaign trails to a judge’s gavel to the legislative debates in the halls of congress, the political and legal dynamics are the backbone of a cohesive democratic society.
