L778 Seminar in American Legal History: The Legal Foundations of American Capitalism

Description Law, legal processes, and legal institutions have long played a pivotal role in American political and economic development. One of the fundamental aims of this seminar is to examine how the law - broadly conceived - has affected, and been affected by, the emergence of a market economy in the United States from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. Proceeding both chronologically and thematically, the course will survey a range of topics including, the development of property rights, the emergence of accident law, the creation of public and private pensions, and the evolution of tax policy. In addition to class discussion, each student will be responsible for a brief formal presentation, a short book review, and a final research paper.
