Western Legal Thought-I presents a study of different epochs that shaped European legal thinking. The course traces the historical development of legal concepts by taking into account contributions of various scholars, ranging from philosophers, theologians, and jurists, to legal theory. The course begins with a particular focus on ancient Greek contributions to ideas of justice and systems of government. It then shifts onto the Roman era and its civil law tradition which comprises the foundation of continental legal systems today. Through a study of the early and the high middle ages, the course concludes by regarding the humanist and the secularist legacy of Renaissance and Reformation upon Western legal theory.
