The Politics, Law & Economics (PLE) session of the Yale Young Global Scholars Program is aimed at students with an interest in understanding economic theory, the values and practices of government, and legal frameworks in historical and comparative perspectives. Students learn key ideas in topics such as public policy, human rights, market regulation, governance structures, and international law. The session enables students to examine social systems and present day issues through the lenses of economic, legal, and political theory. Students will attend lectures by Yale faculty from such areas as the Yale Law School, and Departments of History, Political Science, and Economics. In addition, students will attend smaller, more intimate seminars taught by Yale undergraduate and graduate students from across the university. Over the course of the two-week program, students will also work in Capstone project groups to identify problems in a specific topic, conduct rigorous background research, and propose solutions to those problems to their peers and instructors.
