Program Description:
Description
The objective of this course is to develop the ability of students to think critically and innovatively about the application of law in one’s life as a means to achieve justice at the individual, community and national/global levels. To this end, the course views the institution of law through a number of disciplinary lenses, including those of philosophy, anthropology, literature, neuroscience and psychology. After completion of the course, students will be able to analyse the ways laws help navigate life choices and negotiate spaces for political positioning and social engineering to achieve a peaceful and just society. The course is designed to help develop students as thoughtful and responsible agents in different politico-legal orders. Students will gain a set of conceptual tools and practical competencies to critically examine law’s role in society, across its diverse institutional forms and across variegated ideologies and ends.
