New “Harry Potter” Law Course To Be Offered At Kolkata

“Harry Potter” themed classes are everywhere: from yoga classes to learning how to make your own Harry Potter cocktail drink. There are even several universities in the U.S. and one in the UK that offers courses inspired by the famous series. But a new course has just arrived and it’s a law course.

A law university in Kolkata is offering a new course on Harry Potter, which will encourage students to explore legal aspects of J.K. Rowling’s fictional world and its many real life lessons.

The course titled “An interface between Fantasy Fiction Literature and Law: Special focus on Rowling’s Potterverse” will be offered as an elective to 4th and 5th year students of the B.A LL.B (Hons) program at the National University of Juridical Sciences in Kolkata.

Professor Shouvik Kumar Guha, who designed it, says the class is an “experiment” to “encourage creative thinking.”

The class is expected to include a total of 45 hours of discussion-based teaching, and some of the topics will explore how social and class rights in India can be equated with the “enslavement of house-elves and the marginalization of werewolves” in the fantasy series.

The course, which is set to debut in December, has already reached its capacity of 40 students and many other students have since approached Mr. Guha with requests to increase the class size.
