Build the Hogwarts College of Law Curriculum

Howard Wasserman asks,

What are the law school equivalents to all of the different courses offered at Hogwarts (Defense Against the Dark Arts, Potions, Spells, etc.)?

Let’s see…

I’d think that “Defense Against Dark Arts” is either the § 1983 practicum, or the course on Conflicts of Law. “Potions” is Tax. Divination is “Law and Film”.

Then again, another way to go about it would be to look at Hogwarts’s first-year curriculum:

  • Astronomy
  • Charms
  • Defense Against the Dark Arts
  • Herbology
  • History of Magic
  • Potions
  • Transfiguration

If we have to map that to first-year courses, then what? Civil Procedure is Transfiguration? Torts is Charms? Well they sound a bit alike…
