PHIL 24 Law and Philosophy

Legal practice raises a wide range of questions of interest to philosophers.  Some concern how best to understand central concepts invoked in laws:  What are contracts? What is free speech? Other questions concern what kinds of laws and legal institutions we should have: What kinds of laws should regulate hate speech? When is the state justified in using coercion to enforce laws?  Still other questions concern law itself: How are legal norms related to moral norms?

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
