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)

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?
