Mini Law School


Mini Law School provides participants with a better understanding of important legal principles in key areas of the law.  Taught by members of our law school faculty, the seven-week series provides lifelong learning opportunities for interested members of the community.

For fall 2016, we are excited to roll out a new Mini Law School curriculum, presenting topics that have not been offered previously. We will hold seven sessions on Tuesday evenings, September 13 through November 1 (there is no class October 11). Class is from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. and is held in the Wittemyer Courtroom at the Wolf Law Building on the Boulder campus. Colorado Law’s Mini Law School also will be livestreamed from Boulder to CU South Denver in Parker, Colorado on the same dates and times. Each week, a different topic is presented.  For those for whom neither Boulder nor Parker is convenient, we also have a recorded viewing option. Participants selecting that option will receive the class materials and a link to the lecture weekly and can watch at their own pace and at the location of their choosing.
