LAWS 233 - REVOLUTION,REBELLION & DEMOCRACY
This course will explore the central themes, debates, and ideologies that have molded, and continue to mold, the American legal system by critically examining the fundamental legal documents and the pivotal cases which constitute the legal history of the United States. Particular attention will be given to those times when revolution and rebellion led to historical discussions of an evolving democracy. This legal history is not merely a mass of empty facts and judgments abstracted from a past which has long since passed away, but is rather the essential, vital source of our living present--an enduring past that is constantly being projected into the future in the everyday trials, the legislative debates, and the adminsitration of justice which compose so much of our modern world. As legal historians, we must remain attentive to the ever-present influence of this living history, despite the overwhelming temptation to bury it in the long forgotten recesses of our past.
