Description
This course will be a survey of different topics in legal philosophy.  It is intended to be an introduction to a variety of philosophical issues in the law and of philosophical treatments of law.  It will be organized around a series of workshops each featuring a different legal philosopher who will present and discuss his or her work.  The class will also meet during the weeks when there are no workshops.  At those meetings we will read and discuss material on the topic of the next scheduled workshop in preparation for its discussion and also extend the discussions of the previous workshop through short presentations by the members of the class.
