Department of Political Sciences

ABOUT THE COURSE
This course explores one of the most influential legal systems in the world and its relationship to the global legal order within the context of American and European politics. It focuses on London and the United Kingdom’s relationship to the common law system, including an examination of its relatively new UK Supreme Court and its legal interpretations in the context of the English and U.S. court systems. In doing so, it exposes students to the diversity of English political culture with learning experiences situated at Windsor Castle, the Tower of London, the UK Supreme Court, Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Tudor London (Shakespeare), Crown Prosecution Services, and Brompton Cemetery (Catacombs), with optional excursions to Stonehenge and the Churchill War Rooms.
