There is so much more to a case than its holding. So what is reading a case all about? This course will explore thirteen different ways of looking at a case. It will introduce students to major schools of legal theory as we apply them to canonical cases from the core law school curriculum. In each class session we will learn a particular approach by closely reading a case from constitutional law, contracts, property, torts, and other core classes. Thus, this course will supplement the core curriculum by offering students an introduction to legal thought and providing them with various ways of understanding and critiquing case law.
