Literature and the Law: An Interdisciplinary Liberal Arts Course.
Rouse, Blair
The study of literature and the law, within the context of a literature course, can serve to develop, in prospective lawyers as well as in lay citizens, insight into the significant relationships between the two fields. This paper provides a rationale for one such course, conducted at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, and details its development and content. Students compared the law and legal writing to more specifically "literary" creations, observed the manner in which the law is involved in imaginative literature and other types of literature, and examined the implications of the relationships among literature, language, and the law. A description of course organization and a discussion of assigned readings are included. (KS)
