Concretizing the Principles of Objective Law
Jun 29, 1996
The laws of a proper legal system must be objectively derived, formulated, enacted, applied, and enforced. This course concretizes each of these five aspects of legal objectivity by examining actual court cases, which have been chosen for their unusual and memorable (even entertaining) facts. Because each aspect of objectivity is grounded in at least one easily remembered concrete, the broad abstractions of legal objectivity take on a more perceptual immediacy. The result is a richer understanding of what objective law means in practice. No knowledge of the law or reading of cases is required.
