Dr. Daniel Rynhold: Winter/Spring 2022 1 - - Mondays

A Skirball Academy Class

Dr. Daniel Rynhold

Judaism and the American Legal Tradition

American jurisprudence is filled with competing models for understanding the nature of American law, the relationship between law and morality and the underlying question of whether there is always a single correct answer to a legal question. Recent Jewish thought has attempted to incorporate these ideas into understanding the halakhic system. So what do theories like legal realism, legal positivism, natural law theory, interpretivism, critical theory mean, and what do they have to do with Judaism — and with you?

In this series, we will sort through the chaos.
