The Rule of Law: Legal Studies and the Liberal Arts

A National Endowment for the Humanities
Summer Institute for College and University Professors
June 15 - July 17, 2009 (5 weeks)

Where and how does the idea of the rule of law originate in the Western
tradition? What is its history in the United States? What are its key
texts, traditions, and institutions? How does it emerge in the artistic and
literary imagination? Is there more than one rule of law in the American
experience, and, if so, how do local “rules of law” comport with a national
identity?
