LA 103: Logic & Crit Analysis in Legal Reasoning
This course introduces students to the basic concepts and methods of logic and critical analysis in the context of legal reasoning. The distinctions between formal logic and informal logic, the distinctions between inductive and deductive logic, the use of analogies in logical analysis, and the structure, validity, and soundness of syllogistic arguments are explored through legal reasoning examples and exercises. Students will develop the ability to recognize logical fallacies in arguments and identify cognitive biases in both every day and legal reasoning context.
