Public Welfare Law (20430). 3 units. Few areas of law define a society's values more clearly than welfare law. In addition to obvious humanitarian concerns cited when programs for low-income people are established, policy judgments in this area are inevitably tinged with attitudes about the distribution of wealth, race, gender, and the scope that should be allowed to personal autonomy. Recent events, including the virtual elimination of cash assistance for low-income families in much of the country and the Affordable Care Act, have fundamentally changed what is possible in social policy, how social welfare issues are discussed, and the functions of lawyers, social scientists and policymakers. In this transformed landscape, this course will seek to discern persistent themes in social welfare law that provide insight into its future path. Self-scheduled examination or paper option. D.A.
