PHIL 21000 - Jurisprudence: Law & Society

Course Credit: 1
JURISPRUDENCE: LAW AND SOCIETY This course examines the nature of law, its relation to coercive power and to morality. How should one define law? In what way should precedent determine the decisions of judges? As well as investigating these classical questions of jurisprudence, it will also study contemporary criticism of legal theory, the relationship of the law to justice, and important legal cases.
