Program Description:

This course studies those developments in English history that are the basis of the American legal system. As part of this study students travel to London during spring break. Travel includes visits to the Crown Court, Parliament, Runnymede and Windsor, Canterbury, and several sites in London proper. In London students will meet with a member of Parliament and observe an English criminal trial. Discussion and readings focus on the development of the common law system in English history and its impact on American law. Topics include the origins of the common law system under Henry II; the establishment of limits on royal authority under the Magna Carta; and the early common law forms of action, which are the basis of modern-day American litigation.
