Course Description

What is law? What makes something a legal norm? Should citizens always obey the law? What is the relationship between law and morality? This course will examine diverse perspectives on law, such as natural law, legal positivism, feminist legal theory, and other critical theories. Themes to be covered include: equality, expressive, liberty and religious rights, as well as legal interpretation. There will be a focus on debates over the legal regulation of contested social practices.
