Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course is held by Professor Jeremy Webber, University of Victoria, CAN. https://www.uvic.ca/law/facultystaff/facultydirectory/webber.php

This course will explore the intersection between legal theory,
specifically theories of legal pluralism, and that theory's
consequences for the law's treatment of cultural difference. It will
do so through two optics: 1) the interaction between state law and
Indigenous peoples' customary law; and 2) the law's grappling with
religious difference through secularism and freedom of religion. The
course will be taught intensively, alternating between a critical
examination of theoretical literature and practical, hands-on
discussion of that literature's implications for specific challenges
regarding the rights of Indigenous peoples and the treatment of
religious difference.
