The Law and Social Action Program provides Mercy Girls with opportunities to evaluate how interdependence, as well as political, legal, social, and economic change affect all communities, with a focus on globalization and sustainable development. This three or four-year program facilitates a study of social change through governance, social and legal policy, and justice, allowing Mercy Girls to understand individual and systemic power. Students in this program are encouraged to engage in innovative, responsible action.
This program is open to qualified ninth and tenth graders. Mercy Girls enrolled in this program focus on the Critical Concerns of the Sisters of Mercy as they explore law and public policy.
