We will examine alternative frameworks within which a wide range of legal problems can be analyzed and prescriptions evaluated. These might include "law and economics", "law and philosophy" (including utilitarianism, Kantianism and Aristotelian theories), legal history, critical legal studies, feminism, and empirical legal analysis. The readings will comprise leading examples of legal scholarship in each of these intellectual veins. Guest lecturers having special expertise in the different areas will lead the discussion.
