This seminar course will examine some of the way in which philosophical analysis and discussions of what the law is and ought to be can enrich each other. Students in the seminar will write several short papers focused on weekly readings and a longer final paper. 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 18. Also offered by the Law School as 2470 and the Philosophy Department as Phil 277.
