-  We will investigate some of the main philosophical problems that arise in connection with law in general and with the legal system of Canada in particular. Class meetings will use a lecture/discussion format and take place entirely online on Zoom. Mondays and Wednesdays will be lectures with attendance required. They will be recorded, so that students living in distant time zones can view them during their daylight hours. Friday class meetings will be used for class discussion, assessment (quizzes and exams), and student presentations.
