LAW680 Trial of Socrates

Course Description

A critical exploration of the philosophical, political, legal, and spiritual issues that arise from the life and thought of Socrates as dramatized by Plato in his account of the trial and death of Socrates, and by others from the past and from the present who reflect upon the eternal themes of justice, individual conscience and civil disobedience, freedom of expression, and the existence of an immortal soul. The course will examine ancient and contemporary perspectives on legal issues such as the death penalty, due process, the jury system, and the role of lawyers and advocacy.

A travel/study component with visits to ancient sites in Greece may also be offered.
