This six-week series in Fall 2022 will focus on cutting-edge legal issues in the news.  Open to all, this program is designed for non-lawyers, is an excellent lifelong learning opportunity, and is a great chance to get a taste of what law school is like.  Participants who view at least four of the six sessions receive a Mini Law School Certificate (no academic credit is received for participation).  There are no required readings, tests, or homework assignments - just a great opportunity to learn about the law!

We anticipate that individuals will be able to participate in Mini Law School this fall in three ways:  (1) live at the University of Colorado Law School's Wolf Law Building, from approximately 6pm to 7:30pm MDT on the night of the lecture; (2) livestreaming the lecture anywhere in the country; or (3) on-demand at any time of your choosing, beginning approximately 2 days after the live lecture.  All participants can watch any lectures they miss live by watching a recording at their convenience at a later date.
