This course seeks to help students to understand the relationship between classical rhetoric, legal reasoning and interpretation. It introduces students to legal semiotics--the study of certain categories of argument that recur throughout the law. This course also seeks to help students to see a legal argument as a "roadmap" that guides jury, jurist and lawyer to certain "destinations" or conclusions. The goal of this course is to provide students with the tools that they will need to assess the sufficiency of quantitative and qualitative legal arguments, and to enable students to formulate arguments of their own--two foundational skills for the development of their Law and Society theses.
