"I can say, this is one of the best courses that I have taken at UMASS Amherst. I learned a lot and thank you all for such a great experience. I will surely miss the class." 

“This class was eye opening.  To step back and discuss history, law and current day issues in a broader sense than we would ever do for work will only help me going forward have a fresher and different perspective. I think others would benefit as well from this course - and I have already recommended it.  It isn't easy but it is a great learning experience.”

 Most favorite part of class was “The lectures and class discussions.  So interesting to see how history plays into this current technological revolution and the varying view points and opinions made me think about and consider ideas I hadn't before.”

 “Extremely well organized. It was mix of modern legal, policy and social aspects, and tied them to historical events and law to bring the full context.”

 “A great cohort of students which resulted in excellent in-class discussion of the lessons and reading.”
