Full event details

What do we mean when we say that something is the law? One answer is that a law is a type of rule, but clearly there are many rules which are not law: for example, rules of etiquette, school or club rules and moral rules. During this session, students will explore the concept of law, how it developed and whether it should be intertwined with moral values. Students will debate the function of law by looking at the theories of legal philosophers Hart and Devlin. In conclusion, we will discuss the following matter: If something is immoral, should it also be illegal?
