PHIL 3203
PHIL OF LAW:RIGHTS/LAWS/JUDGES
This course explores the question of constitutional rights. What rights should our constitution provide? Can constitutional provisions be given a strict legal interpretation, or does constitutional interpretation require judges to apply their own moral beliefs? Should unelected judges have the authority to strike down legislation just because, in their view, it violates rights such as freedom of expression and equality? Prereq: One year of university study
