This seminar will cover the theoretical, social, and legal implications of domestic violence. Students will examine the evolution of civil and criminal justice system interventions, the legal and psychosocial theory informing the state’s approach to domestic violence, and the future directions of domestic violence law and policy. We will consider the intersection of survivors’ experience of domestic violence with issues of race, gender, class, sexual orientation, and immigrant and indigenous status.
