Critical Legal Theory (20263). 2 units. Critical movements in American legal scholarship emerged between 1975 and 1990. These movements debated the value of rights discourse and studied how legal argument and legal culture either obscured or apologized for continuing injustices in American society. In this course, we will revisit some of the scholarly work published during this period and consider whether it has relevance for today's world. We will also read selected contemporary work in order to ask what a critical approach to law would look like in the twenty-first century. Enrollment limited to fifteen. Self-scheduled examination or paper option. J. M. Balkin.
