Theories of Rights

There is probably no concept more fundamental to our legal order than the concept of a right. This seminar will study the nature, content, and justification of rights, not only in law but also in ethics and political theory. The seminar will devote particular attention to freedom of expression and related rights. Students need not have a substantial background in philosophy, but they should have a taste for difficult philosophical prose.
