Program Description:

Students in LA145 study the developments in early English history that form the basis of the American common law system. As part of their study students travel to London during spring break to enrich their understanding of this English foundation by visiting places and people relevant to course materials. These materials in the form of readings, case studies, and discussion focus on the period from 1066-1215. Specifically, topics include the historical origins of the common law system under Henry II and the establishment of limits on royal authority under Magna Carta. These topics are developed in relation to the king’s interest in protecting real property rights and protecting individuals from criminal activity, both of which came to be the basis of common law jurisdiction in the royal courts
