My Teaching

At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I teach several courses that cover aspects of South Asian legal history. All are undergraduate courses in the UW Legal Studies program, an interdisciplinary major that combines law, the social sciences and humanities. Some are also cross-listed with History.

Here are my Legal Studies syllabi: History of Forensic Science (spring 2020) • Law & Colonialism (spring 2013) • Lawyers & Judges in the British Empire (spring 2008) • Legal Pluralism (spring 2020). I also teach Contracts I to first-year law students at the UW Law School. That syllabus is available upon request: mitra.sharafi@wisc.edu

For information on Legal Studies programs across the US, visit the Consortium of Undergraduate Law & Justice Programs’ website.

For more legal history/socio-legal studies syllabi, see: the CULJP’s Law & Society syllabi •  the Law and Society Association’s Teaching Materials Repository (for members) • the Triangle Legal History Seminar’s  Legal History on the Web

Office hours: I am on leave for a research fellowship in academic year 2020-21. My weekly office hours will resume in fall 2021.
