"What is the Rule of Law? Is it Real or is Law Just Politics?" – Myra Kraft Open Classroom


  • Ted Landsmark, Distinguished Professor, Public Policy and Urban Affairs; Director, Kitty and Michael Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy, Northeastern University
  • Wendy Parmet, George J. and Kathleen Waters Matthews Distinguished University Professor of Law, Northeastern University
  • Jeremy Paul, Dean and Professor of Law, Northeastern University
  • Dan Urman, Director of Hybrid & Online Programs, Northeastern School of Law


The Spring 2018 Open Classroom will explore the definition of the Rule of Law, what it requires, what happens in its absence, and how it has declined and emerged globally. We will also explore some of the tensions between the Rule of Law and Democratic Governance, focusing on the Rule of Law in time of polarization and technological upheaval (as in the United States but also abroad).


The Spring 2018 Myra Kraft Open Classroom is co-sponsored by the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs and Northeastern’s School of Law.
