►Course Goals and Objectives: This course examines the development of western law from an historical perspective. Through a combination of lecture and discussion of assigned readings, students will be introduced to the foundational documents of the law, their historical context, and their relevance to modern jurisprudence. Students will be expected to recognize and comprehend major themes of private and public law, the relationship of subject and sovereign, rights of the individual, law and statecraft, and the philosophy of law. ►Curricular Outcomes: This survey will increase awareness of the diversity of western culture through the lens of comparative law and the development of legal norms. Students will gain an appreciation of their own role in a legal society, as well as the greater international community.
