The Surrey Centre for Law and Philosophy has just launched a free “taster” course in jurisprudence/intro to phil law on the online learning platform FutureLearn, covering topics in general, special, and applied jurisprudence. The course is designed for anyone curious about how philosophical reflection can impact how we think about law and legal decision-making, but it will be especially useful for current or prospective law students looking to gain a basic understanding of the theories underlying law and legal systems to supplement or prepare for their studies. The course has a 5-week structure and can start anytime.
The course design was led by SCLP Co-Director Dr Ken Ehrenberg, with further contributions by Prof Veronica Rodriguez-Blanco, Prof Dennis Patterson, Dr Christopher Taggart, and Dr Hrafn Asgeirsson.
