This course will explore the ways in which the institution of slavery interacted with the law in the United States and how the law defined freedom and the practices of freedom. The first two weeks will focus on slavery and the law. The rest of the course will focus on the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments. For added credit, students may satisfy the writing requirement by enrolling in Law 794W.
