This course examines the philosophy and science of law as tools of social engineering. Students will be introduced to tort, contract, property and criminal law and will review different schools of thought and legal movements specific to these areas of law. Current legal developments (including decided Canadian cases) will be covered to illustrate how concepts such as risk, negligence, neighbour principle, contractual obligations, offer and acceptance, consideration, remedies and punishment play out in contemporary Canadian society.
This course may not be repeated for credit.
This course will be offered next in Winter 2018
