Law and Literature (2 hrs.) — E or QP
The course explores insights into the meaning and value of law that are communicated through literature. It seeks equally to elicit corresponding student insight into the meaning and value of law in their social and professional context. As a secondary goal, the course aims to understand the methodology and theory that make possible valid and true statements about the relation of law and literature. The course pursues its goals through the reading of literary sources. Enrollment is limited to 20 students. If the instructor allows papers in lieu of examinations, this course may include a qualifying course paper that fulfills one half of the upper level writing requirement.
