We will examine alternative frameworks within which a wide range of legal problems can be analyzed and prescriptions evaluated. These frameworks might include those provided by "law and economics", "law and philosophy" (including utilitarianism, Kantianism and Aristotelian theories), legal history, critical legal studies, feminism, critical race theory, and sociological theories of law. Leading examples of legal scholarship in each of these intellectual veins will form the subject matter of the seminar with guest lecturers having special expertise in the different areas leading discussion.
