Bowman Hall, Room 110

Department of Political Science Comparative Legal Systems

Through the lens of Italian law, history and culture, this course introduces students to global legal systems and the specific courts that use their interpretative powers to shape and bind the political world order. It uses on-site visits to historic legal venues, cultural sites and practicing lawyers or judges to explain whether the rule of law, and justice, is afforded to citizens that are entitled to basic due process or equal rights in criminal or civil cases that capture world attention. By exploring foreign and domestic courts within an international law framework, it gives students the analytical tools to understand a comparative perspective about how the law is politically applied and functions within, and between, nations to produce equitable and just policy outcomes.
