This seminar explores the intersection of law and society, expanding the law student’s understanding of the interaction of law and culture. Using representative texts and depending on the semester, issues addressed will include the image of the lawyer and of the legal system in society and culture, the responsibility of the lawyer to others in society, the trial and the public imagination, and the literary interpretation of legal texts. The instructor of this course has published a course book relevant to this course; see Christine Corcos, The Media Method: Teaching Law with Popular Culture (Carolina Academic Press, 2019).
