To mark its founding in 2000, The University of Toledo’s Program in Law and Social Thought invites current and former students to attend a 20th-anniversary virtual celebration scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5.

The event can be accessed on Zoom using the access code 899 8165 5226. The meeting password is 794641.

Based on the view that the study of law and justice is best pursued when located within a rich humanistic and social scientific tradition, the Program in Law and Social Thought is the only program of its kind in Ohio’s public universities.

The degree program was established by UToledo professors Dr. William D. Rose, adjunct professor of political science, and Dr. Ben Pryor, a visiting professor of philosophy, who, inspired by nationally recognized programs of undergraduate study in law and society, drew on the unique strengths and opportunities at UToledo in creating the program.

The Program in Law and Social Thought is now under the co-direction of Dr. Renee Heberle in the Department of Political Science and Public Administration and Dr. Jerry Van Hoy in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology.
