Listed in: Law, Jurisprudence, and Social Thought, as LJST-101

Faculty

David P. Delaney (Section 01)
Adam Sitze (Section 02)

Description

This course provides an introduction to the LJST major. It explores the ways in which law combines moral argument, interpretive practice and force in the regulation of social life. Through the close and sustained study of an exemplary case decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, students will attain a nuanced understanding of law as a subject of liberal inquiry. While focused on the history and development of legal orders in the United States, the course also will enable students to appreciate law in its broader cross-cultural, historical, and global dimensions.

Limited to 40 first-year and sophomore students. Spring Semester. Professors Sitze and Delaney.

If Overenrolled: Preference will be given to students who have previously taken the fewest LJST courses
