Course Description

May not be counted toward a major in English.

We will study the early history of English Law by learning the early meaning of legal terminology, e.g., the meaning of "law," "fee," "lord," "sake," "moot," "court, "plea," "procedure," "brief," etc. We will begin with the terms from Alfred (Anglo-Saxon), work our way through terms from Henry I and II (Anglo-Norman), and add on elements from Latin, Old Norse and German.
