First Day 1/28
Meet Day W 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM HLS WASS 3018


This seminar will explore some of the ways in which philosophical analysis and discussions of what the law is and ought to be can enrich one another, with a special focus on moral issues involving law and government policy. Students in the seminar will write frequent short papers, focused on weekly readings, as well as a longer paper at the end. For roughly half of the weeks, the readings will be drafts of works-in-progress by philosophers, political theorists, and law professors who will present their work in the seminar.


Admission into this seminar is by permission of the instructor. Please send applications to Jan Qashat (qashat@law.harvard.edu) by Friday, November 14. Also offered by the Law School as 2470 and the Philosophy Department as Phil 277.
