Desc:An examination of philosophical issues relating to the principle of freedom of expression, along with the related principles of liberty of conscience and freedom of the press. We will survey defenses of these principles in the history of philosophy, look at the legal history of free speech in American Constitutional law, and examine some candidates for censorship or regulation: offensive speech, hate speech, conspiracy theories, and pornography. Note on prerequisites: one previous course in philosophy is sufficient.

L30 Phil 3507Legal Conflict in Modern American Society3.0 Units
Description:Thousands of lawsuits are filed daily in the state and federal courts of the United States. The disputes underlying those lawsuits are as messy and complex as the human, commercial, cultural and political dynamics that trigger them, and the legal processes for resolving those disputes are expensive, time-consuming and, for most citizens, seemingly impenetrable. At the same time law and legal conflict permeate public discourse in the United States to a degree that is unique in the world, even among the community of long-established democracies. The overarching objective of the course is to prepare our undergraduate students from any academic discipline (and with any post-graduate plans) to participate constructively in that discourse by providing them with a conceptual framework for understanding the conduct, mode of analysis and resolution of legal conflict by American legal institutions, and the evolution of - - and values underlying - - the substantive law American courts apply to those conflicts. This is, at core, a course in the kind of legal or litigation "literacy" that should be expected of the graduates of first-tier American universities. Some of the legal controversies that will be used to help develop that "literacy" include those surrounding the permissible use of lethal force in self-defense, the constitutionality of affirmative action in university admissions, contracts that are unconscionably one-sided, sexual harassment in the workplace, the extent of a landlord's (or university's) duty to prevent criminal assaults on its tenants (students), groundwater pollution alleged to cause pediatric cancers, the use and abuse of class action lawsuits, and warrantless searches of cellphone locator data by police. Prerequisite: sophomore standing or higher. It is most definitely not a prerequisite to be intending or even thinking about going to law school. No more than two excused absences during the semester.

Label

Home/Ident

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
