About this course
This course is divided into two parts: modern legal theory, and the study of a special subject.

The first involves detailed historical and critical examination of prescribed texts with particular reference to the development of Anglo-American jurisprudence from 1750 to the present.

Writers studied include Bentham, Llewellyn, Hart, Dworkin and those from both the critical and feminist schools.

The special subject can be chosen (depending on availability) from one of the following: Legal Reasoning; the State, Law and Liberty; and Law and Social Theory. 

Students have the option of attending the course in term 1 only (15 credits) or attending in both terms 1 and 2 (30 credits).
