Law & Literature
This course explores how literature depicts the legal system and what that depiction reflects about society’s view of the law. Through close readings of fiction, we will explore the following questions: Is the lawyer a hero and crusader for justice? Can the law unveil the truth? Does fiction portray the reality of the legal system? Can the legal system adequately address complex moral problems? Readings include To Kill A Mockingbird and 12 Angry Men. Final paper required.
