LAW 7775

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

Over the last few decades, numerous strains of legal scholarship have leveled sweeping critiques of law. Scholars have criticized law for deep-seated failures involving class, gender, sexual orientation, race, citizenship, etc. This course explores the history of these critique-based movements and approaches, while also examining their contemporary status. It focuses on Critical Race Theory, Critical Legal Studies, the Law and Economics Movement, and Feminist and LGBT Jurisprudence. Our goals will be not only to understand the genesis of these important grounds for critiquing law and to consider how they may intersect, but also to question the potential limitations confronting such critique-based perspectives on law.
