This course considers several themes: a reading of how law, juristic principles, and legal actors are represented in literature; an understanding of how writing the law or about the law, in the form of judges’ opinions, lawyers’ briefs and memorandums and court submissions, or reporting of caselaw. Law serves as a most appropriate focus for a study of literature in a wider sense, too, since it mediates claims from different worlds: economic, social, political, and intensely personal.
The larger objective of the course is to facilitate for the participants in the course a critical discussion about the role of the law, the life it rules over and administers, and the complex nature of circumstances that the law must simplify and translate into its own language.
