Notes

Abstract: In my project I will evaluate the moral groundings of the U.S. legal system and explore the ethical theories supporting its validity by refuting the commonly recurring arguments for ethical relativism and by investigating moral actions of the U.S. civil rights movement. My thesis will be a meta-analysis of the ethical theory from literature such as "Beyond Subjective Morality" by James S. Fishkin, "Philosophy of Law," by Martin Phillip Golding, and "A Case for Legal Ethics" by Vincent Luizzi. I will first explore the issues of ethical relativism on a broad, conceptual basis, move on to the ethical basis for law in our society, and end with a case by case analysis of the legal system in the United States of America, dealing with instances of environmental racism.
