Course Description

Feminist jurisprudence is a field in which scholarly activity is rooted in a set of practices designed to excavate and revise the myriad ways in which law conditions the lived experiences of women, men, and children. In the course, we will study what are understood to be distinct schools of feminist jurisprudence and the forms of practice that each supports. We will read the key historical texts, and we will pay close attention to contemporary problems, including the challenges raised by critical race feminism and queer legal theory. Along the way, we will focus on the implications of feminist theory for specific doctrinal arrangements, constitutional arguments, and the legal system itself.
