In the Fall of the first year, this 5 week long signature course exposes students to foundational legal concepts and forms of legal argument and analysis. It introduces you to the history of American legal thought and the way that history shapes your education today, to the economic analysis of law and to the -- often contentious -- fights over legal methodology. It is designed to supply some of the connections among and between the courses in your legal education, to deepen your skills, improve your understanding and give you a better “toolkit” for the rest of your legal education and your legal career.
