W381 – Objection! Current, Contentious and, Confusing Legal Battles
T.V. shows and films about the law make the legal profession seem exciting and glamorous. Discover how real law can be even more stimulating than its dramatic facsimile. This series focuses on selected current, highly publicized, volatile, and contentious legal issues presented in important select cases pending before, or just decided by, federal and state trial and appellate courts, as well as the U.S. Supreme Court. Our class always invites stimulating interactive colloquy upon newly emerging important and contentious developing legal issues to better understand the often disparate and confusing legal positions of all opposing parties. Examining current “hot button” issues will assuredly evoke engaging dialogue, hopefully resulting in an enhanced understanding of our laws and Constitution. Immediately prior to the first lecture, enrollees are invited to attend a pre-lecture primer at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, January 12, outlining the structure of federal and state appellate court processes. Returning participants are also always welcome to attend.
