Developing a critical approach to law

Those of you wishing to develop or further develop a critical approach to law should read the Critical Lawyers Handbook which is available on this website.

The lectures on this site are organized as follows:-

The first term’s lectures have their roots in phenomenology and, in particular Peter Berger and Thomas Luckmann’s book The Social Construction of Reality.(See also John Searle The Construction of Social Reality and  A Critical Introduction to Law W.Mansell,B.Meteyard and A Thomson). The second half of the term on law and market capitalism is based on Eugene Pashukanis Law and Marxism.

The second term (Ian Grigg-Spall) is based on a reading of Karl Marx Volume 1 Capital, Pashukanis Law and Marxism, M.Foucault Discipline and Punish,  David Harvey The Limits to Capital, Rubin Essays on Marx’s Theory of Value(introduction), I Meszaros Marx’s Theory of Alienation and the Power of Ideology and D.Sayer Marx’s Method.

The third term (Paddy Ireland) is based on a reading of the above and Roger Scruton The Meaning of Conservatism and W.Waldegrave The Binding of Leviathan.
