This course is designed to facilitate students’ thinking about the law rather than learning detailed analysis of the legislation and cases consigned to a particular area of law. It requires students to critically consider the nature of law, its role in society, and various perspectives and critiques on law. Legal Theory focuses on major theoretical traditions which have influenced the development of our legal system. Students will develop an integrated understanding of complex jurisprudential concepts, through the critical analysis of primary theoretical literature and case studies.
