This course is different from the other courses that make up the JD program. It is designed to facilitate students’ thinking about law in general rather than learning detailed analysis of the legislation and cases consigned to a particular area of law. It will require students to critically consider the nature of law, its role in society, and various perspectives on and critiques of law.
This subject focuses on major theoretical traditions which have influenced the development of the Australian legal system and the boarder Western legal tradition. The aim is for some level of depth rather than mere breadth, with an emphasis on analysis of primary theoretical literature and case studies.
