POSC 130g Test formats: a few short answers (5 of 8) and an essay (choose 1 of 2) Studying how law helps and hurts citizens/people… however a law/court case is passed or decided will always promote one interest while hampering the progress of an opposing issue How social interests are balanced with individual rights (police safety v. individual privacy) Courts have judicial review, except court positions are there lifetime and thus, not politically accountable… raises many questions on their power + position Leads to some sort of “countermajoritarianism” Main question: what are the most important rights for us and why do we protect/support certain legal rights? What is the relationship between law and justice? Ideal vs. real: we ideally protect the “freedom to expression” but we’re quick to attack protestors Justice the best ideal theory by which a country/organization can be run Law depends on the circumstance Legal positivism: law + justice may cross paths or not depending on the situation
