This encore course is PRE-RECORDED and unavailable for live streaming. YouTube video links will be posted in "Course Materials" on Sept. 21 and available for viewing anytime until Dec. 31. We will host two livestream classes — Sept. 25, 11-12:30 (PT) with Berkeley Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky discussing the recent Supreme Court term, and Oct. 2, 10:30-noon (PT) with Jonathan Simon on criminal justice reform.
It seems that each vital social and political issue of our times finds its way to our court, and Berkeley School of Law’s renowned professors are engaged in all of them. OLLI has the honor to present six professors in six weeks who will discuss some of the most critical legal issues being addressed by our courts and legislatures. From religion and the Supreme Court and building a just economy through labor-law reform, to cybersecurity, the death penalty, and the use of lethal force by American police. Join us for what will be intellectually invigorating deep dives into these fraught issues.
