LAW 3020: Legal Perspectives

The class has been divided into 24 wiki groups (A through X). Please refer to the “Course Schedule, Content and Readings”, below, to see which case has been assigned to your discussion/wiki group (A-X). Groups and members are listed following the “Course Schedule, Content and Readings.”

Over the course of the term, each group will build a “wiki” entry around their assigned case. Your wiki will consider and discuss how each of the theoretical perspectives covered in this course applies to, illustrates, and explains the key issues in your case, and the approach that was taken by the court. At the conclusion of the wiki assignment, each group will have built a complete wiki entry that examines “their” case from all of the theoretical perspectives that we have covered in this course, including a discussion of any relevant comparisons between them (eg.” A legal positivist would say X, because of Y; a legal realist, on the other hand, would find Y to be an illusion, identifying the most significant factor as A, and the most valuable outcome as B, because…..”) The objective is that your final wiki entry should engage these theoretical perspectives with one another, as opposed to comprising a mere listing of theories. The class structure has been adopted to facilitate the ongoing development of your wiki.

The mark for the wiki will be a group mark, and class time has been set aside for you to work on this assignment together. Contributions to the wiki should also be made outside of this designated class time, and may be made by individuals working together or separately (entries are track-able by the professor). The designated class time provides you with an opportunity to discuss and agree to any changes that have been made to the wiki since the last class meeting, in addition to discussing how the theoretical perspective discussed that week relates to “your” case. You are expected to refer to the materials that have been assigned for class; you may also access additional materials and refer to them in your wiki entry. The objective is to make your wiki entry the best it can possibly be.

If you have any technological questions or concerns relating to the wiki assignment, please contact Brian Lamb, Director of Innovation at:
