Comparative Bill of Rights Seminar
Judge D. Davis
J.D. Seminar 631 (cross-listed) | 2 credit hours
The core enquiry in this course turns on the extent to which there is the germ of a global cosmopolitism , given the plethora of entrenched bills of rights which have been introduced since World War II. Given the limitations of a single course and a vast range of rights contained in constitutional instruments , the course will concentrate on key, core rights – dignity , equality and freedom together with the potential for transformative jurisprudence through a comparative examination of courts treatment of socio- economic rights.
Prerequisite: Constitutional Law I: The Federal System.
