Indian and Tibetan Law and Philosophy** - LAW927

2 Credits

In this course, students examine the legal philosophy underlying the religious laws of India and Tibet, comparing the jurisprudence of Hinduism and Tibetan Buddhism to the jurisprudence of the western legal tradition. Topics of discussion include the relationship between law and culture’s dominant epistemology and metaphysics; Hindu and Tibetan cosmologies, concepts, and sources of law; and the interplay of secular and religious laws in modern India. (No prerequisite. Satisfies Perspective Requirement.)
