Intention and the Law

In this seminar we will explore the role of intention in the law. We will discuss the relevance of intention to culpability, responsibility and legal liability in different parts of the law.  Topics we will study from this angle include contracts, torts, criminal law, corporate law, employment law and constitutional law.  Students will present a short paper in an assigned week and submit a 25-30 page paper on an approved topic on the last day of class.
