Democratic government is commonly assumed to be essential to a just legal system. But is that assumption always correct? Do our traditions of active and vigorous legislation, zealous litigation, and professional lawyering guarantee justice? Are there ways in which they wholly undermine justice? What about public discourse, arts or the media? Do they always promote the kind of open, free society in which law and justice thrive? These questions receive sharp scrutiny in the writings of Plato. In this module, we examine how some classic ideas about justice and democracy, have shaped law and society for centuries.
