Mini Law School

The University of Colorado Law School's popular Mini Law School returns for its ninth season this fall with a brand-new curriculum that examines voting rights, election law, and the impacts of the 2020 election. Taught by Colorado Law faculty and open to all, this eight-week online series is an excellent lifelong learning opportunity and a chance to get a taste of what law school is like.

All sessions will be hosted online via Zoom from 6 until 7:30 p.m. on most Tuesdays in September and October; registration is required. Lectures will also be available on demand for all registrants beginning two to three days after the live lecture. Each week's lecture will focus on a different topic.
