Course Description

Unlike prior courses which focus on law as it is - 'black-letter' law - this capstone course considers more theoretical, analytical, doctrinal and philosophical aspects of the entire law enterprise - a specialised societal subsystem. This course canvasses several philosophical doctrines including: natural law, legal positivism, sociological context of law and economic analyses of the law. These and related topics are explored in this course to enable students to integrate legal knowledge into the broad inter-disciplinary mainstream and equip them with enhanced practical legal reasoning skills. 

On successful completion of this course, you will be able to:
  1. Undertake an account of the ancient and modern history concerning an enquiry into the nature and purpose of law.
  2. Demonstrate a sound knowledge of the main theories of law, disputes, doctrines, topics and principles canvassed in the course and explain their ongoing relevance to current legal practice.
  3. Apply the analytical and critical legal skills developed in the course to contemporary legal problems, issues and challenges.
  4. Undertake and effectively communicate research on topics and issues in this course as well as formulating practical legal argumentation compliant with rationality requirements and acceptable modes of legal reasoning.
  5. Act and respond appropriately to the comments and opinions expressed by others.
