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?

Prerequisite

One Philosophy course, or permission of the instructor.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:TMV; WCult:W

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.

Offered

Not offered in the period of 18F through 20S
