LEG 180 Foundations of Law Course Overview


CEA Partner Institution: Anglo-American University
Location: Prague, Czech Republic
Primary Subject Area: Law
Instruction in: English
Course Details: Level 100
Recommended Semester Credits: 3
Contact Hours: 42


This course provides an introduction to the concept of Law and an overview of the key traditions that have shaped modern Law on the European and American continents. As such, it naturally presents a useful background and ideological context for the study of Law; however, it also offers a sweeping overview of Law as it relates to, inter alia, business, economics, sociology, and world order.

Students are expected to gain a deep understanding of the Foundation of Law, of the original idea of implementation of IUSTITIA (Justice), of those values and logic underpinning the organisation and functioning of the various legal systems in Europe as well as in the US. After gaining an in-depth knowledge into these issues, students will be better capable to appreciate the various concepts, ideas and logic transmitted to them during the study of those various subjects which compose their course of study.

Part I (weeks 1-7): What is "Law". How is Law defined and where does Law come from? What are the original ideas underpinning the creation of the various legal systems? What are the essential aspects and principles of modern Law and legal systems and what experiences and traditions have defined these aspects? Where does modern Law come from?

Part II (weeks 8-14): Law in practice: what is the need to regulate business activities? Can the Market not come to optimal solutions?

This Course teaches concepts as well as skills, hence combining theoretical knowledge with practical applications of theory. A particular emphasis will be put on the development of analytical skills and critical awareness from the side of students. The course is suitable to fresh Law students as well as to students of other disciplines interested in understanding legal concepts and the application to their area of study. There are no prerequisites.
