Philosophy of Law

In this course, we will explore philosophical puzzles posed by our legal practices. We will address puzzles posed by doctrines from criminal law, tort law, and the law of evidence, among others. We will think about the role that intent plays in statutory interpretation and the value of economic analysis. We will also take up questions about the nature of law and the relationship between law and morality. No prior background in philosophy is required.
