Humanities Seminars Course: Contemporary Law and Policy: Four Perspectives

Tuesday, May 1, 2012 - 3:00am to Tuesday, May 22, 2012 - 5:00am
Humanities Seminars courses take place in the Dorothy Rubel room at the Helen S. Schaefer Building located at 1508 E. Helen St. (at Vine Ave.)

When Oliver Wendell Holmes declared that “the life of the law has not been logic; it has been experience,” he meant that law is a messy and imperfect invention reflecting the human condition.  This course will explore the imperfect nature of law today by focusing on cutting edge contemporary problems in legal interpretation and policy, with each covered by a distinguished faculty member from the College of Law, who is a well-known expert in the field.  Four distinguished faculty members from the College of Law will lecture on an area within the faculty member’s expertise.
