Course Description: The course familiarizes law students with the basic characteristics and functioning of legal systems. While many law courses focus on particular areas of law, covering the main doctrinal rules and principles which govern them, this course is distinctive in equipping students with three further important tools for a rounded understanding of law, its practical operation, and its impact in society. These are, first a detailed study of the rules, protocols, and conventions which govern the judicial interpretation and development of law in the English legal system; second a comparative and historical analysis of the very different way in which those rules and protocols have developed in both the civilian systems of the continent of Europe, and the common law system of the United States; and third, an examination of the legal rules and processes embedded in institutional structures and traditions, and how these institutions have changed over the last 30 years.
