Any lawyers out there? I am in a law and ethics class in my legal studies and the professor has decided to base 80% of his class on Thomas Aquinas. Aquinas' a priori is that law is based on reason and that law is in the mind of man from the mind of god. I cannot accept his a priori and am having SO much trouble explaining to the class how I can't get past this. To me, reason and god are complete opposites. Anyone who has chosen to believe in god has circumvented his reason and the debate ends there. Any advice on how to survive this class and learn law without constantly debating divine law? Thanks!
