Contemporary Theory of Law - LAWS520

What kinds of social behaviour and meaning are called law? Who does this, how and why? Who wants to criticise law, how do they do that, and why is there such resistance to the idea of looking at law from the outside? This unit introduces major critical orientations, both fairly traditional and recent. The unit is intended for those with a specific interest in critical contemporary theory of law. Assessment is by essay and students are encouraged to pursue topics that particularly interest them.
