Course content

It is sometimes said that political theory concerns the questions of who gets what and who says? In modern pluralistic societies an additional question arises: how can we live together peacefully in circumstances in which we disagree about how best to live? These issues are both political and legal.

States, and increasingly the international domain, regulate citizens lives through law. The LLM in Legal and Political Theory a unique collaboration between the Departments of Politics and Philosophy and the York Law School offers students the opportunity to study the core issues and approaches of political and legal theory and to consider the relations between them.
