Seminar - 2 hours. When surveyed, Americans consistently report high confidence and trust in the United States Military and service members. This trust and confidence has come from a history of devotion to the defense of the United States, which includes a culture of teamwork and discipline. To this end, the military has developed laws and regulations tailored to the unique mission. As the United States has seen social change, these unique laws and regulations can be at odds with or promote change within our society. This course will look at social change in the areas of race, gender, and LGBTQ identity though the eyes of military law and regulation. The course will explore those area where the military promoted positive change and where it hindered change. Students will have the opportunity to analyze the issues using military law, provide their personal perspective, and discuss ideas for change.
