MCLE: Poetic Justice - Literature & The Law

Wednesday, September 30, 2015
12:15 p.m. — 1:15 p.m.
Is there a difference between law and justice? What is the truth or value of a confession? Can art make us better people, citizens, and practitioners of the law? In this presentation, we will discuss how literary texts address and can help answer these questions. Be introduced to works that either overtly treat the subject of the legal system or address the ethical and moral assumptions that underpin it, and examine the relevance of such works to judges, lawyers and to all of us whose lives are bound up within the juridical system.
